Latest Work

Tree Planting in the Evenlode Catchment

Great work in Milton-Under-Wychwood creating new habitat as part of the landscape and biodiversity theme of the Evenlode Catchment Partnership. Species that were planted included blackthorn, hawthorn, and rowan that will provide a rich food source for birds, butterflies and mammals alike. 

 

Thank you so much to Pat Ward for getting so much of the community involved and to Neil Clennell from the Wychwood Forest Trust.

Farming & Wildlife Spring Newsletter

Spring Newsletter, Farming and Wildlife – How Farmers can lead Nature’s Recovery in Oxfordshire:  Download Our Latest Newsletter

Farmers have been stewarding our countryside since humans settled into agricultural communities about twelve thousand years ago. Over those twelve thousand years, farming practices have changed, reflecting social change, improvements in breeding and technology or changes driven by legislation and policy. The one thing that has remained constant is change.
