Mission Statement

To purchase land in the Bristol-Avon catchment are to reforest.

Description

We are a recently registered Bristol-based charity established with the goal of buying land in the Bristol-Avon catchment area to reforest for the purposes of carbon sequestration, natural flood management, improved biodiversity, better air and water quality and to provide beautiful, publicly accessible amenity spaces.

Program Details

We are presently fundraising so we may make our first purchase - 34 acres at Hazeland, which is in the Marden valley between Chippenham and Calne. We have agreed a fee with the current land holder and hope to make the purchase by Spring or Summer of 2020. Our fundraising so far has involved a couple of online crowd funding campaigns as well as events such as pub quizzes, cream tea parties and guided nature walks.
