Remembering and celebrating the life of Sandy Kennedy.
She was passionate about restoring this ancient forest and planted many trees here. A gem of a woman,
dear friend and committed activist with a big heart, strong spirit and wicked sense of humour.
Fondly remembered and sorely missed.

Add trees to this grove

Hey Sandy, still planting for you.

Met Sandy just this spring for a week of tree planting in Glen Affric,
she loved it and we all loved her - for her sharp dry wit,
her deep infectious laugh and her warm strong heart.

So many special times with Sandy –
when she has made me laugh, danced with me,
cheered me up, inspired me –
and always, always, been there in times of need.
Beloved, amazing, original Sandy.

Knowing that a small corner of wildness is
growing in your name makes the
deep sadness at losing you more bearable.
Your mischievious sense of fun,
compassion and wisdom will be with us forever

Your grove of trees

The trees in this grove will be carefully planted in protected sites in the Scottish Highlands where they will create homes for wildlife and forests for the future.
