Big Green week- Presentation of Ceremonial Planting Pot from Platinum Jubilee Queen’s Green Canopy Project

We are delighted to announce that we will be gifting the ceremonial planting pot that contained the tree that was awarded to QPCO as part of the Platinum Jubilee Queen’s Canopy project, to the Higgins museum on Saturday 10th June at 11am.

Please share the poster attached widely!

We feel that the tree and pot awarded by the Platinum Jubilee Queen’s Green Canopy project to QPCO also recognise the many communities in Bedford that came together to create the Charity. So, as well as planting the tree where the public could see it, we wanted the pot to go somewhere it can be viewed by the public. We decided the best place to preserve this piece of Bedford history was the Higgins Museum.

Everyone is invited to join us for this presentation. This will be followed by activities for #GreatBigGreenWeek, which is the UK’s biggest ever celebration of community action to tackle climate change and protect nature. A host of free events aimed at helping you to connect with nature at the heart of Bedford will be delivered by the Higgins Museum with community plant stalls, garden tours, foraging walks and creative activities.

This ceremony and the display of the Ceremonial Planting Pot is also an opportunity to learn about the work that QPCO have been doing with the Green Canopy in Bedford. QPCO will be also giving out herb plants at our stall, for people to plant in their gardens.

We look forward to seeing on Saturday.
