The Real Hedge Fund

The Lake District Foundation works with partners to help care for the landscape, wildlife and heritage of the area. We know that people have been really valuing our natural world during lockdown and we have been getting lots of enquires about how best to offer support. We think hedgerows tick a lot of boxes!

We have an ambitious plan want to create or reinstate 4 Kilometres of new hedgerows in the Lake District.

The Real Hedge Fund

Sadly over the last 70 years our hedgerows have become significantly reduced both in the length and in quality. Now seems a really excellent opportunity to engage and support farmers, landowners and communities to reinstate and improve their hedgerows.
