Why we’re here

Although wild flower grasslands have declined by 97% since 1940s we exist to strengthen and increase the remaining network of flower-rich grassland to improve the “Natural Capital” of Herefordshire.

This includes a whole range of public benefits that flower-rich grasslands provide to :

  • Support pollinators vital for food production
  • Maintain and increase wildlife habitat
  • Increase nutritional value and productivity of diverse swards
  • Improve drought resilience and carbon sequestration and storage
  • Help maintain healthy soils and clean air and water
  • Retain water for natural flood management and increased resilience in wet weather
  • Protect historic features
  • Improve mental and physical health, wellbeing and enjoyment of the countryside and heritage
