Land For Nature

With your help the Land For Nature project will restore native woodland, orchards and meadows in West Cornwall.

We did it
On 16th October 2018 we successfully raised £610 with 4 supporters in 28 days

What's the problem?

Over 99% of Cornwall's so-called 'unimproved grasslands' have been lost to modern intensive farming and, more recently, to housing development. Old maps show extensive orchards and woodland that have long since disappeared. 


What will we do?

Land For Nature will restore and protect green space for nature for the future before it is too late.

We will create a refuge for wildlife.


We will plant a new orchard and wildlife habitat of native vegetation to create a vital refuge for birds and other wildlife.



We will plant native trees to coppice.

Coppicing of woodland has been practiced for hundreds, if not thousands, of years. The additional light reaching the ground, and the variety of ages of trees in the woodland will provide a wonderful mosaic habitat for a large number of species.

We will manage the land as a Community Resource

Volunteers from our local community will interact with the land and take part in traditional rural crafts and creative outdoor activities. 


The land will be protected from future development.

This is the most important part of the Land For Nature project. The land will be legally protected from future development.
