A couple of miles across the Nidd valley from Bank Woods are our fields on Dacre Lane, which total just over 5 acres. Here we have started planting trees with clearings and ponds, all to support biodiversity.
This is the location for a woodland sponsored and planted by Jamyang Buddhist Centre Leeds, on an ongoing basis. The first trees were planted during winter 2020/21. If you would like to contribute to this woodland, you can do so here.
Also on this site, we have planted a small woodland for The Every One Club, an action group to support people to make changes needed to address climate change.
Both of these exciting projects were featured in the Yorkshire Post.
We were also delighted to be asked to plant and dedicate a small copse especially for our neighbours in Dacre – they can watch the trees grow from their window!
