MINI-FUNDED TINY FORESTS FOR BIG BENEFITS.

At MINI, we’ve made our name doing more with less. We've spent decades using resources responsibly in our cars, and we're eager to keep making positive changes. That’s why we’re over the moon to continue our partnership with Earthwatch Europe. Together with help from local communities, we’ve planted eleven MINI-funded Tiny Forests across the country – and we’re not stopping there. Read on for the full scoop.

A BREATH OF FRESH AIR.

Wondering what exactly a ‘Tiny Forest’ is? It’s a wild space made up of 600 densely packed, native trees. They’ll be set inside a space roughly the size of a tennis court, and will support urban wildlife and help people reconnect with nature. In fact, because of the high biodiversity, the forests are estimated to attract over 500 animal and plant species.​

WATCH THIS GREEN SPACE.

Louise Hartley, Tiny Forest Programme Manager at Earthwatch Europe, commented, “Tiny Forests provide rich opportunities for connecting young and old alike with the environment and sustainability. It’s vital that we give
people the knowledge and skills to protect our natural world and inspire
them to take positive action. We are delighted to be working with MINI
UK to bring these inspiring spaces to communities across the UK.”

The latest Tiny Forest to spring up can be found on the grounds of Littlemore Mental Health Centre, Oxford – quite literally down the road from our very own MINI Plant Oxford.
