Marion Matheson Youth Development Co-ordinator South Uist Youth Development Group in partnership with Claire Scott from the Western Isles Volunteer Centre applied to the Woodland Trust for a community planting pack. This pack consisits of trees and shrubs native to the island.

The young people planted the trees in the Storas Uibhist garden at their new offices. The young people will continue to care for the trees and shrubs.

The trees will add colour, landscape interest, absorb noise pollution, improve air quality and help alleviate local flooding.
