Plant saplings to offset your carbon footprint on our first managed three acres of land.
There are currently no dates scheduled for this event. Please telephone 01473 - 375 026 for available dates for this event.
Join us on our new three-acre 'Haven for Nature' to plant saplings & hedging. The site has been left to its own for over eighteen years & there has been a fair amount of unmanaged, uncontrolled rewilding. NOMAD Community Ventures supports unmanaged environments wherever possible but this site needs some cutting back to allow for new planting, particularly hardwood saplings, grasses & wildflowers galore.
There are some diseased naturally germinated saplings that need cutting back & NOMAD Community Ventures is taking guidance from an ecologist at the Suffolk Wildlife Trust. Our in-house entomologist is sampling the site for terrestrial & aerial insects to get a broad picture of the current bio-diversity & volume on the site.
Please book your place as we need to know who is expected for equipment & catering purposes.
NOMAD Community Ventures staff will be on-site all day & our volunteers are asked to attend from midday to two o'clock but you can leave at any point to suit you. We ask that you plant a minimum of one sapling per person provided by NOMAD Community Ventures.
We ask our volunteers to consider making a small voluntary contribution which goes directly to the not-for-profit & 100% is used for its work i.e. purchasing forks, shovels, spades, native wildflower seeds, equipment for our community garden, hives, bug hotels, bird/ owl/bat boxes and over the coming years, electric powered cutters, small trailer, work vehicle & on site security. PLEASE make a small donation to help with this important work - thank you.

An amazing 2 hours spent outdoors, planting saplings of various varieties. I look forward to seeing the site mature & grow over the coming years. Not only did we plant trees, we also had a BBQ, and chat whilst eating. Look out for the next dates as it is well worth the visit.
Our thanks to you both for your hard work & support. We look forward to welcoming you again in 2022.
