Welcome to 1000 Acres

 

1000 Acres is a not-for-profit project aiming to regenerate the areas of the UK countryside that have been scarred by intensive farming as well as industrial and commercial activities.

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 to enable us to start on this endeavour, so please support us today, and help us regenerate the damaged UK countryside!

Our Plan

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.

Support The Bees

 

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

 

Their survival is vital to our survival and reintroducing them to areas will benefit the UK as a whole.

Rejuvenate Land

 

The UK has large areas of land devastated by intensive farming, as well as industrial and commercial practices, resulting in large areas of abandoned land.

 

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.
