Would you like to make your garden more wildlife friendly?
Lots of outdoor work can seem really daunting. If you would like some help we can provide a team to tackle those difficult jobs.
We offer a range of services including:-
Pond creation and restoration
Tree planting (woodlands and orchards)
Hedge work (planting, laying and gapping up)
Creating wildflower meadows
Installing fencing and kissing gates
Small tree work
Stroud Valleys Project has a special interest and expertise in creating and restoring wildlife friendly places so they can be shared by people and wildlife. We will assess the work for maximum wildlife benefit. Our aim is to help local people to garden for wildlife so that the Stroud District area is good for nature, has improved habitats and encourages wildlife. In addition, our aim is to provide meaningful opportunities for our volunteers to work in this field of work.
The wildlife gardening scheme provides a bridge between volunteering and paid work for our volunteers and is the next step for many of our volunteers who have increasing levels of fitness and knowledge.
We aim to tackle jobs that would take one or two people a long time and that we can tackle quickly with a team. By employing our team and making a charity donation, you are helping and supporting this process. Our charge is £250 per day. This includes an initial visit to assess the work and discuss your needs with one of our qualified and experienced project officers, followed by an organised workday with a team of volunteers (3-8 people). It also includes all tools, transport, and insurance.
Call us today for an informal discussion or call into our eco shop.. We hope this work will help you and your wildlife, and by booking our charity to do the work it will help us too.
