Growing Up Green in Bearwood & Smethwick
" I am excited to be a part of growing up green, because I think children and young people are naturally ecologically aware and exploring and developing this will help us to create a better world for them and with them. "
Jenny, Bear Bookshop
Bearwood Welly Bank - launching this Growing Up Green week!
Bearwood Welly Bank offers free pre-loved outdoor clothing and footwear for babies, children and adults. Our goal is to help families re-use outdoor wear and prevent it going to landfill – good for the environment and good for families’ bank balances!

Get to Know Your Trees at Warley Woods
Why not take part in a marvellous Tree Trail especially created for #GrowingUpGreen by the Warley Woods team? 'Know Your Trees' encourages you to look and see if you can find the 6 trees identified on the sheet and put a tick by the ones you see. You will learn how to spot the trees, by their leaves, seeds/nuts/berries and trunks. There are a lot of them here!
Paper copies are available at The Pavilion shop or you download your trail sheet here.
