You Are Also Included In Our Rewilding Project
The UK was recently assessed for its biodiversity, which considers the variety of plant and animal life that exists. Due to much of the UK’s green habitats being destroyed or polluted we were ranked the 189rd worst country in the world out of 218 countries.
This is really bad and we must all do something to change it.
At ZERO Carbon Companies we decided that this needs to change, so we have decided to financially support the UK's first Food Forest rewilding project, which is located on the shore of Loch Rannoch in Scotland.
The project will grow around 100 fruiting trees and bushes, where the crop will be provided free to the local community. The Food Forest will offer nutritional benefits and enjoyment to local people, from the youngest to the oldest.
The 1.4 acre site has been leased by the land owner and the capital cost of the project is £25,000. All the tree planting will be completed by volunteers. Roughly half of this will be for the trees and the other half will be for robust fencing to protect the fragile trees from deer browsing.
The Food Forest will offer a sustainable resource for the community. It will achieve educational, nutritional, health and wellbeing outcomes for this very remote community. Any excess fruit will be supplied to a local food bank to support the needy.
It is a pioneering project that we hope will be replicated in other communities.
We make a financial contribution on your behalf to this project,

We will send you videos as the project is built, which you can use in your
