The Astaffort School Forest is part of a series of environmental projects taking place across the region. This environmental partnership with the municipality began in 2011 with a proposal made by the Nature Club to develop various communal lands on which vegetation was virtually non-existent due to lack of maintenance and damaging weather events.

In recent consultations with the local government, the final development project for the Astaffort land saw a decision reached to create an innovative, outdoor educational space for a local school by planting a 200 Sq m native Miyawaki forest. The idea is for the forest to be a place of fun, curiosity and learning for the children, as well as a refuge for local wildlife.

"The Astaffort Forest emerged from a chance meeting between three women acutely aware of the importance of ecological projects in promoting greater understanding about the environment, supporting biodiversity, and also cultivating a sense of community among those able to enjoy the completed forest projects."
