This event has already started. Unfortunately, tickets are no longer available.

Help us to plant trees to strengthen the wildlife habitat links between the special woodlands of Ty Canol and Pengelli.

Planting trees is a great way to spend time outdoors doing something useful for our environment, and wildlife in your local area. 

It is also a nice way to meet good people and get some exercise to work off those mince pies and christmas puddings!

Over twelve days of planting we will plant 3000 trees; filling in gaps and thickening up hedgerows. Creating a robust network for wildlife to travel between the two woodlands as well as habitat niches and micro climates along the way.

CARE are a Community Benefit Society determined to make a positive environmental impact for our local community in North-East Pembrokeshire. 

After 13 years hard work we've successfully put up a 700kW wind turbine to generate clean energy. We are now working on developing a share offer to invite people to invest and become members of CARE, which will help grow a fund for the benefit of the local community. We are also working hard to deliver our other community projects, focusing on landscape restoration, creating an eco-friendly space for arts in the community, and offering energy efficiency advice.

Over the years we've worked with other communities, businesses and individuals across North Pembrokeshire; sharing what we have learned along the way, to help build resilience to the changing economy and the changing environment, through community action and enterprise.
