Harborough Woodland Community Volunteers

Harborough Woodland Community Volunteers

Responsibly increasing regional tree and hedge cover where possible without cost to the landowner. We are ambitious, keen to build synergy between the isolated talents and empower the unlimited community capacity. We are passionate about people, wildlife and their future. Our priorities are befriending landowners, community groups, government agencies and charities. Finding and helping to implement opportunities in school, large area natural flood management and agroforestry schemes. We're promoting all best practice. We are planning support for green social prescribing and training to create employment.
