The Thames Chase Trust has worked in partnership with the Land of the Fanns project to secure vital support funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund to refresh the existing Community Tree Nursery and engage the local community in creating a resource that will remain for the future. The Thames Chase Trust is committed to the Community Tree Nursery project and is seeking an enthusiastic environmentalist who has the energy and drive to take forward this exciting new chapter for the nursery.

The Thames Chase Community Tree Nursery has been at the heart of the Thames Chase Community Forest since its inception in 1990 and is a key project in the Thames Chase Plan. Since this time, the existing nursery has provided new trees for many planting schemes across the area; engaged the local community in collecting seeds from local trees and hedgerows; hosted conservation volunteer project days; and educated children from local schools and youth groups.
