Re-wilding project, tree planting & land clearance

Event Date: 7th March 2020, 09:30 – 12:30

Event Category: Volunteering Activity

Location: Cookbury

Nick Rosen, writer and documentary maker, has purchased a wetland field in Cookbury and is in the process of setting up a re-wilding project. Following a successful first meeting, volunteers are being sought for ‘re-wilding’ action days at land near Cookbury.

The project: Nick has received a grant to plant a new woodland off Allen’s Lane, near the Dunsford Estate, and he is keen to get volunteers on board to help with preparing the land and planting the first few hundred trees.

Friday March 6th: Preparation and permaculture-Nick will meet volunteers at the church at 2.30 pm
Saturday March 7th: Scything and tree planting-Nick will meet volunteers at the church at either 9.30am or 11.30am to be taken to the site. Lunch and soft drinks will be provided.

Where: The action day meeting point is in the middle of Cookbury village — outside the Norman Church St John and the Seven Maccabees.

Why: The 480 trees we plant will help take carbon out of the atmosphere and stop agricultural water draining down into our rivers and streams.

Equipment: Volunteers are asked to please bring a spade and fork and any cardboard you can find.

For more information and if you have any questions please contact Nick by email at nickrosen@gmail.com or call 07971 543703.
