We now have a full colour, detailed printed map locating all of the 193 trees and their varieties. These maps are free and usually available from: Boatyard Bakery and the Custom House information point both on Exeter quay as well as the Exwick’s Community Builder Rachel. Please let us know if you can’t get hold of a copy. We hope to make the map available online in 2021.
Join me for a run through the park to see what we can learn about trees, each other, our breathing and the climate. Riverside Valley Park on Wednesday 13 September at 6.00pm, meeting in front of The Malt House, Harvester pub EX2 8BP. The run is especially suitable for people with some experience of running/improvers. The run is 3.5km along the Exe Riverside Valley Park and includes three short stops. Please wear suitable clothing and footwear.
We breath between 20-50,000 times every day. Over a 4km stretch of ground Running with Trees explores the intimate relationship between breath, trees, carbon dioxide & climate change starting with our own breath.
The first run in June took place in a torrential downpour and despite this 9 people turned up and stayed the course. I dont think I have ever been so drenched! This time the rain only spotted and we found ourselves running in bright late sunshine and under the arc of a rainbow. Here are some images from the run.
With thanks to Matt Rowett run leader.
