About Forest of Flowers
The Forest of Flowers project has created 74 acres of woodland and wildflower meadows and has 18 ponds, with the sole aim to maximise biodiversity and provide a thriving natural sanctuary for wildlife.
The land, previously a mixed arable and sheep farm, was re-purposed in 2016 when over 42,000 trees and shrubs were planted, alongside 35 native wildflower species. This is part of a vision to create a thriving ecosystem to benefit pollinators, birds and a diverse range of native wildlife.
The project also supports:
- Carbon capture to reduce the effects of climate change.
- Flood prevention in the local area.
- UK wildflower population, providing seeds from the meadows to other sites nationwide.
