Farmers and Landowners
The Dunsmore Living Landscape team are working with farmers and landowners within the scheme area to restore hedgerows, woodlands, ponds and meadows.
We’d love to work with you. Get in touch with us to find out more.
The Dunsmore Landowner Award: coming soon in 2018!
One of our old elm hedges was slowly dying back, bit by bit. The Dunsmore volunteer team coppiced the old hedge and replanted it with hawthorn and other native species. This work has already made a big difference on our farm. Great team, great job! – Crick Ellis, Hilltop Farm
The Dunsmore Team is keen to partner with community groups within the scheme area.
We are looking to assist groups in accessing the Dunsmore Living Landscape and can offer subsidised transport and a range of activities suited to your group.
We are also looking to support small-scale environmental projects, particularly wildflower meadow creation on verges and in church yards and, in key locations, access-related work.
You gave those who attended a huge amount of pleasure with your craft hearts and kindness throughout the morning. It is very much appreciated by myself and our volunteers that you came to our dementia support group in Lillington. Thank you for your ongoing community work, it is very special. – Tony Britton, Pam Britton Trust for Dementia

Warwickshire Wildlife Trust education team are working with local primary schools to deliver lunch-time and after-school sessions to pupils in key stages 1 and 2.
Sessions are based around the theme of nature and heritage of the Dunsmore area.
For more information email Vicky Dunne.
The whole group were fully engaged with all the sessions. It was nice to see children doing teamwork and using their imaginations. – Ann Veal, Knightlow Children’s Partnership
We are working with Wild Earth social enterprise to run youth work sessions with existing youth groups in the scheme area.
Sessions aim to re-engage young people with the natural world and include bushcraft, survival skills, arts and crafts and much more.
We also run an annual big tree climb with the Great Big Tree Climbing Company.
