1st Anniversary Tree Walk
Meet 11am, outside St John’s Church
The Tree Walks have been running for a year. During that time we have been on over 30 walks, in various forms, we have formed the Tree School, tree identification workshops, guided many visitors around the town, and provided a platform for people to socialise, interact, and get out into nature.
This walk is to celebrate one year of the tree walks, it will include the usual tree exploration, nature based conversation, socialising, folk music and tree identification. We will also be joined by a journalist from the Metro, who is coming to visit and write an article about our lovely town, so we want to make a good impression and give her the best experience of Avalon.
This walk has not been listed elsewhere, so it may be a walk with fewer people, which might be preferable for some.
It will be fun, sociable, educational, and hopefully warm!
Date: Sun 15th March 11am
Meet: St John’s Church – High Street, Glastonbury
No booking necessary, just turn up and walk.

Why do we do it?
– To gain knowledge of the basic tree species and how to identify them
– To be inspired by nature
– To connect with and give thanks to the trees – the oldest living beings on this island
– To visit some hidden gems, trees, spaces of the isle of Avalon
– To get to know the local land
– To share some of our creativity and offer it to the wilderness
– To walk and sit in nature for the simple joy of it
– To share and have conversations and spark new collaborations
Where do we meet?
We meet at St John’s Church at 11am and walk in the countyside on a route guided by the trees.
Feel free to bring a packed lunch as we’ll be out for around 2-3 hours. This is an informal walk to meet trees, to be in some lovely natural spaces, to sing (or listen) to songs, listen to nature and be quiet too.
The walk concludes back in the town at approximately 2pm.
