At Earth Trust, most of our hedges are maintained by volunteers who lay them every few years. Although the process might look destructive, their work will allow our hedges to thrive for generations to come. In this post, volunteer Paul tells us more.
Around the Earth Trust Farm, community reserves and even in our car parks you may notice that many of our hedges are “laid”. We spoke to three of our hedgelaying volunteers, Bill, Martin and Mike, to find out more.
Four years ago Chris Phillips became a Trustee. “I chair Earth Trust’s Safety Committee and, as a retired head teacher, have also taken a keen interest in the environmental education programme.”
