Back to our Roots with help from Volunteers at Denmark Farm

Everything is blooming in May here at Denmark Farm with some wonderful funding news.

We are very grateful to have recently received two small grants from Environment Wales and The Big Lottery Fund. This funding will enable us to get back to our roots and concentrate on some essential conservation and maintenance tasks, with support from local volunteers.

The past year has been a particularly hard one with all funding drying up, reduction in staffing and some unexpected shocking weather damage. Although, we are now starting to see more guests staying at Denmark Farm and joining our events, it will still be several more years before income from this activity is stable enough to make us financially sustainable. This small grant provides us some welcome breathing space to refocus on our core charitable aim to highlight the relationships between people and nature, exploring the value and diversity of life and landscapes.

Our new one year project ‘Gwaith Dros Natur’ is all about your time for nature. It is an opportunity for you to enjoy and contribute to our unique 40 acre nature reserve. In turn we hope to learn more from our site through wildlife monitoring and improving habitats with a range of essential practical tasks. We will together be building on our understanding of how we can continue to manage the land to transform it into an even more valuable site for humans, plants and animals.

Everyone is welcome to join us for volunteer events throughout the year – building your skills, helping maintain the varied habitats and rich biodiversity at Denmark Farm Conservation Centre

We will be holding a Gwaith Dros Natur Taster event on Saturday 7th June from 10.30 to 1.30pm, with light lunch provided. Please do come along to find out more and get involved.
