Stronger Roots - Regeneration and healing in Buxton's community woods

In the last year, many people have turned to Buxton’s ten community woodlands as places for respite and healing. In response, Buxton Civic Association have been awarded funding for The Stronger Roots project. This will run until March 2022 and will help build on this momentum to benefit both our woodlands and people.

The project will develop a series of community events and activities to help everyone access and enjoy our woodlands. These will grow our connection to nature and bring health and wellbeing benefits to us all.

The project will also address the ash dieback crisis, create regeneration clearings to promote new growth and germinate seeds. This will help regenerate the woodlands and ensure that they can be enjoyed by our community far into the future.

This project is funded by the government’s Green Recovery Challenge Fund. The fund is being delivered by The National Lottery Heritage Fund in partnership with Natural England and the Environment Agency.
