Wales Tree Festival, National Botanic Garden of Wales, Llanarthney

August 17, 2013 @ 10:00 am - August 18, 2013 @ 6:00 pm

Everything that is good about wood is being celebrated at the National Botanic Garden of Wales on August 17 and 18.

The many highlights of the Wales Tree Festival include displays and demonstrations by the country’s top turners and carvers; a stunning collection of Treen (antique wooden household objects);  and music and stories from Ghana – land of the Ghost Forest.

There will be a chance to make your own tree-based herbal remedies; as well as demonstrations of how to turn a tree into logs.

A ‘Robin Hood’ camp will be set up for youngsters to make bows and arrows and build dens; there are guided walks, a tree trail and a chance to hear what Swansea University have discovered about climate change by studying oak trees in the Botanic Garden.

The Garden is open from 10am-6pm.
