We wish to fund an initiative to equip the Community Meadow project with a chicken coop, fencing and 8 hens to help with a positive impact.

by Trevisker Community Meadow CIC in Padstow, Cornwall, United Kingdom

Trevisker Community Meadow CIC is a Community Project based just outside of Padstow. In the 4 years that we have operated with have:

- Planted thousands of saplings,

- Sown wild flowers,

- Created raised beds and workshop areas,

- Regenerated a wildlife pond,

- Hosted workshops, events and activities.

We now regularly have participants join us from schools, colleges and other community groups and volunteers. The benefits of spending time outside, connecting with nature, has positive effects on people's mental and physical wellbeing.


We would like to create an area of the meadow where we can safely have chickens:

- They Reduce Anxiety and Depression

- They Encourage Verbal Communication

- They Encourage Routine and Responsibility

- They Provide Laughter

- They Lessen Loneliness

- They Trigger Fewer Allergies


We are running this Crowdfunder to secure donations to help with the following costs;

£1200 Nestera Wagon for 8 hens with auto door opener

£400 Fencing

£400 Point of Lay Hens, food and other supplies


This is £2,000 in total. We hope to be able to raise this money as soon as possible
