Flora and Fauna

Formerly farm land, our site has a number of plants already present that we hope to nurture and expand on over the coming years. By removing dead plants and adding more of their native counterparts, we hope to encourage additional wildlife activity, and we have also been advised to increase the biodiversity of the site to help this process along.
