Want to put something back?

With your help, we can create projects with real impact that allow you to invest funds and time into work that not only delivers environmental benefits but is relevant to you, your business, staff and clients.

We can help you deliver, real, tangible local results with woodland management and woodland creation. Working with local businesses allows us to work on targeted, specific projects that match up with the aims and objectives of all involved.

The work we do with Ulverston business, Working Class Heroes is a perfect example of delivering environmental results locally. Through the 1% For The Planet Scheme, they invest 1% of all Patagonia sales into projects such as ancient woodland restoration at Haverthwaite Heights.

If you are a member of 1% For the Planet, let's talk! If not, you can find out how to join below.

Haverthwaite Heroes

Ancient Woodland Restoration at Haverthwaite Heights

Working Class Heroes have been working with Cumbria Woodlands for the past 4 years on restoration activities in the South Lakes. Owned by the Lake District National Park Authority, the Haverthwaites Heights area is a special woodland in need of restoration to restore it to a more dynamic, diverse and resilient woodland.

This film looks at some of the work done so far, but also the philosophy behind why businesses should get in involved with environmental projects and the benefits of working locally.

"...we enjoy it, and maybe other businesses will see the advantages of this, not only to the environment but to the business itself... If you can make positive environmental changes, and it's beneficial to your business, they are sustainable, and I think that's the key"
Tom Bowden - Managing Director, Working Class Heroes

The past, present and future of Haverthwaite Heights

We caught up with Jamie Chaplin-Bryce to get his perspective on the woodlands and the restoration work taking place

Trees in the ground

And the award for best dressed tree planting team goes to...

The most recent work has involved getting trees in the ground with the team. Activities have been delayed due to Covid, but things are back on track now and it was fantastic to move on to the planting phase.

The bracken took some serious beating back, then once suitably bashed they got the fencing installed and now it was now time to plant a mix of over 200 trees around the existing Larch.

It's not over though, far from it. There is so much to do in the area, and restoration work will continue over the coming months and years. It's fantastic to work with a group taking a long view and who are willing to invest their time and energy on a large scale project.

Bring on the next bracken bashing!
