Over recent months we have been delighted to work with Manchester City of Trees as part of their Heritage Trees project. This four-year project aims to celebrate, record and protect local tree heritage – the trees, woodlands, hedgerows and orchards which are part of the fabric of our towns and cities. With funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund, the project will create a unique online interactive database of people’s stories, memories and photographs of their local tree heritage – as well as maps showing where to find trees of interest in Greater Manchester.
We worked with the team to develop a bespoke training session and resource exploring how our STORYBOX methodology could be used to engage people living with a dementia in their project. We look forward to seeing the resource, and skills people have learned, in action as the project progresses.
