Horticulture Wales Champions Climate, Biodiversity, and Wildlife at Wrexham University’s Northop Campus!

Horticulture Wales is proud to announce the success of Wrexham University’s Go Green Week 2024, a collaborative effort to promote environmental sustainability. As part of this initiative, over 200 trees were planted at the Northop Campus on Thursday, March 14th, with the support of dedicated volunteers.

Horticulture Wales, a project funded by SPF and supported by Flintshire County Council and Denbighshire County Council, was made possible by the generous donation of trees from the Woodland Trust.
This tree-planting initiative, which included a variety of species such as hazel, blackthorn, crab apple, elder, and more, aims to combat the decline of wildlife corridors. According to statistics from the Woodland Trust, since 1950, approximately 118,000 miles of hedgerow have vanished, posing a threat to biodiversity. By planting trees, we strive to reverse this trend and create vital habitats for wildlife.

“We are thrilled to have been a part of Wrexham University’s Go Green Week 2024,” said Naeve Richardson, Project Development Officer of Horticulture Wales. “Together, we are making significant strides in environmental conservation and sustainability.”

Horticulture Wales is committed to broadening wildlife corridors on Wrexham University’s Northop campus and are planning to plant more trees later in the year. If you would like to get involved, please email Horticulturecluster@wrexham.ac.uk.
