Welcome to 1000 Acres

 

Welcome to 1000 Acres – a project aiming to regenerate the areas of the UK countryside that have been scarred by industrial and commercial activities.

1000 Acres is a not-for-profit social project run by Intuitive Change Consultancy Limited – A social and not-for-profit environmental and sustainability consultancy – further information is available at www.intuitivechange.org

We are working to create several areas of land, once green and beautiful, that have been damaged beyond recognition and are now laying as waste land. Using this land will enable us to transform huge areas of the UK.

It is well known that climate change is threatening everyone on this planet, and without drastic action, this could result in the deaths of hundreds of millions of people worldwide. This is our first step to countering this in the UK.

We are also working with local specialist apiarists – Bee Keepers to you and me – to help stem the tide of another ecological disaster, the alarming death rate of our bee population.

We are going to plant a huge variety of trees, plants, wild flowers, heather, and native species that have declined in number, such as the Bluebell and certain trees. Every part of the 1000 Acres projects is to be guaranteed pesticide free, to ensure the greatest return to life possible.

Within 5 years, we are aiming to have these areas designated as ‘wildlife sanctuaries’ and, in time, give them to individual trusts, who will be given guardianship of the land and continue the task of maintaining them.

1000 Acres is a huge project, and we need support for the first phase, which will allow us to start on this endeavour and really get started, so please support us today, and help us regenerate the damaged UK countryside!

Our Plan

Rejuvenate Land

 

The UK has large areas of land devastated by antiquated industrial and commercial practices that are ceasing to be practical.

Taking this land and restoring it to its former natural state will enable us to bring back native species of plants and animals and reverse the effects of the past.

Damaged Land
Plant Life

Native Plant Growth

 

Native plants have been routinely substituted for imported plants, either for aesthetic reasons, or due to them being ‘higher yield’ commercial crops.

We aim to reintroduce native species, such as fruit trees, heathers and bluebells in a natural manner, to increase the national numbers of these wonderful plants.

Encourage Bee Population Growth

 

Bees are vital to the world. Without them, we would not have pollination of plants, decimating the plant population, with a resulting knock on effect for all of Earth’s inhabitants.

Their survival is vital to our survival, therefore, introducing them to new areas will benefit not just our project, but the UK as a whole.
