What’s on offer?
Long-term projects
They can tailor make a project just for you. You help plan and direct what they do and even control the purse strings. In the past they have; painted raised beds, created a pond, created a wildlife garden, made bug houses and bird boxes.

If you’re not sure something long term is for you, they can provide one-off activities like; creating a bog garden, creating a wildlife or pond area, species survey, tree planting, environmental art or photography.

They can happen on afternoons, evenings or Saturdays, be regular or one off, involve a small group of people. If you complete 30 hours you get to go on a group trip!
