Every month we like to review the brilliant pledges tand events that have happened. This month we had Earth Day (theme 'restore our earth'), we visited Braunton to give out house martin nest cup materials and wildflower seeds and we have helped to support a new community rewilding project in South Molton. Barnstaple in Bloom also organised a brilliant 'Tidy the Taw' event. This month we have a special guest writer Bethany Lee (volunteer) who has written a section about how to enjoy the sunshine in an environmental responsible manner which ties in well with the Devon wide Naturally Healthy May campaign!

2020 Award Winner Farmers

A large proportion of land in the Biosphere is farmland so we always love to hear of farmers and landowners who are making space for nature. This could include installing a barn owl or kestrel nest box, letting your hedges grow to be big and bushy, planting trees, looking after your soil health or creating a small pond. Photo: Herbal ley

It's been a tricky year for community groups to be able to meet and work together on conservation and nature related activities. Whether it was before March or working in small groups throughout the summer it was great to hear about these brilliant people coming together to help nature. Photo: DWT Group pond construction
