Wilderlands farm hasn't added a story.
Come and be part of the wild revolution!
We are inviting you to be part of creating a haven for nature and wildlife for generations to come. Join us in one the most dynamic and newest biodiversity havens. Helping to save animals lives, creating habitats and supporting wildlife to thrive. Come and be part of the wild revolution!
Wilderlands farm is a new project to encourage each other to support nature at this critical time. All around the world we are losing our wildlife, natural habitats, our wild eco systems and natural resources at an unprecedented rate. We want to support people to reclaim their wild heritage and become better connected, nature supportive communities that enrich all lives.
Wilderlands Farm is 20 acres of 5 medieval meadows , along with our partners, we are custodians for 213 acres of ancient forest in Sussex near Fletching. So altogether 233 acres for nature, wildlife and well being.
We are now one of the UK's newest farms and our is aim to create a haven for nature and wildlife focusing on biodiversity in all its forms, but with a creative and well being aspect, integrating the arts, music, nature writing, nature education, retreats and more.
We have managed to secure a loan to buy the land and also we need to raise enough money to plant habitats, such as hedgerows, ponds, wild flower meadows, bird, bee & bat boxes.
Our aim is to also rescue animals that need a helping hand and can also help create habitats for more wildlife to thrive. So far we have two Highland cattle coming in April, called Lilly and Ella, 3 Kune Kune pigs called Pinky, Perky and their blind mum called Mama. At Wilderlands Farm they can live long happy lives.
We also plan to reintroduce pine martens, then red squirrels, beavers and create habitats for turtle doves, nightingales, glow worms and maybe one day wild cats. The land already has nesting ravens, red kites, buzzards, kingfishers, tawny owls and so much more which we will document as we spend time on the land and get to know it's wild residents.
We are committed to creating the most vibrant biodiverse landscape possible, to show what the potential is if we. commit to loving nature.
We will also host small events and opportunity for people to connect with nature, to find peace, solace and creativity in the natural world. We have hosted nature events for the last 8 years and host nature writers, conservationists, musicians, artists, indigenous elders and wild craft specialists.
We are already in talks with hosting The Children's Forest, where families can come and plant orchards and tend them, watch them grow, plus rights of passage for young and elder adults, creating forest gardens with people with learning difficulties, plus support people struggling with mental health and addictions to find well being and purpose through connecting with nature and art.
We will support people to have positive nature experiences that will inspire people to support and fall in love with the natural world.
One of the best ways to protect wildlife and create havens of nature regeneration and rewilding, is to create havens for nature. it Part of our ethos is to let nature get on with what the knows best. A helping hand in the beginning may be useful, establishing a plan and then watching as nature starts to thrive. it is our hope the Wilderlands farm become havens for wildlife and for us all to enjoy and embrace the wonder of nature.
So we are going to attempt the impossible and make this vision a reality, not just for our lifetime but for generations to come, a true place of wonder, for the benefit of all beings, not just humans!
Every Penny helps
Your help can make this farm a real place of joy, not just for our lives but also for future generations as it will go into a land trust so nature can thrive in perpetuity. We are attempting to raise enough money to pay off the loan, but also for our day to day needs, feeding the animals, planting hedgerows, wild orchards, wild flower meadows, creating ponds, mending, stitching, sewing, weaving, digging, building, cooking and sharing and all the endless ways we can make this a haven for all wild beings.
Including you! That means if you can invest, there are various perks like attending events, or t shirts, getting updates plus access to events both in person and online, so no matter where you live you can be part of this journey!
We truly hope you are inspired and anything you give will help to make this happen. Your money won't be going for any wages or to be spent on ourselves but will all go back into the farm to help it thrive.
