Christmas Plastic Free Pop up Shop
Of all the trees that are in the wood..
Our Christmas pop up shop is the best place to buy original and environmentally sound gifts and seasonal essentials. Local growers, artists and makers fill our greenhouses and we supply the best local Christmas trees, our own hedgerow wreaths and sustainably foraged greenery like holy and mistletoe.
The idea of a plastic free greener Christmas is just that, as a business we have worked hard to remove single use plastic and examine all wasteful aspects of what we do. A lot of what we do simply references a time before plastic use,
We have a brilliant range of cut and potted trees, all grown close to us. We sell all our trees without netting and bound in hemp hop twine, this year we can offer free delivery within ME13 of any items purchased – we encourage you to leave your car at home.
Christmas Trees, Wreaths and Foraged Greenery
This year we have our biggest selection of Kent grown trees, Nordman is our favourite tree as it holds both its needles and colour way past the 12th night. We have a range of metal tree stands in which the tree can sit in water, this keeps the tree fresh and we are happy to store the tree until required. We can supply trees up to 20ft tall, contact us for pricing.
We also have a range of potted blue spruce and Norway spruce, both are available up to four foot tall and can be sold in one of our own planter buckets or you can bring your own and we will plant it up for you. Both varieties are heavily scented and ideal for those with limited space or just want a subtle tree!
We will have a big range of fresh wreaths and table decorations all made from sustainably foraged greenery. We use material from the grounds of the Abbey school which have a surprising range of trees and hedgerow plants. Our pine cones come from 3 Scots Pines on site, when we do collect material like holly we are careful to take small amounts from each plant, making sure plenty of berries are left for animals.
Gifts and Decorations
Every year we make a range of gifts and decorations from waste material from the local coppice industry. We spend time selecting woods and off cuts to be turned in to figures and table settings, it is a combination of seeing the potential in something that would normally go to Biomass and being honest it gets us in the spirit of the season.
Our makers are friends who we have done farmers markets over the years, we also get local organisations in, this year we have a group from Herne Bay and makers from the Mens Shed at Faversham Physics garden. We charge a small commission and this allows a staffed display shop to run right through the Christmas period. We have a preview opening night on the 22nd of November where you can meet some makers, have some mulled wine and hopefully buy some great gifts.
