Along the Hawthornvale cycle path, the Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop is in the middle of construction of a new Sculpture Centre (due to open in 2012), to be closely followed by construction of the Creative Laboratories which is due to open in the Autumn of 2013.
Once construction is complete, ESW will be landscaping the cycle path and the areas which surround the two new buildings. The landscaping plan uses trees and shrubs native to Scotland and, to help the landscaping establish as quickly as possible, ESW is running a ‘Tree Hosting’ project - starting from now, volunteers will host a tree in their allotment or garden for up to 2 years, until 2013, when it will be replanted on the Hawthornvale path.
ESW will supply the trees in pots which will can be put straight into the ground, allowing them to be more easily replanted in two years time. The trees will take a little bit of care but as they are small should be easy to cope with - and no blame will be attached if your tree fails to thrive for whatever reason.
Would you like to host a tree which will be used in ESW’s landscaping of the cycle path in 2013? If you would like to be a Tree-Hoster please get in touch as soon as you can so we can arrange a collection date for your tree.
