It’s spring and our hedgerows are exploding – and a new project is underway:

Hedgelink is a partnership that brings together everyone interested in hedgerows, to share knowledge and ideas, to encourage and inspire, and to work with farmers and other land managers to conserve and enhance our hedgerow heritage. 

Hedgelink – Working together for the UK’s hedgerows

The project has government backing:

This project is funded by the government’s Green Recovery Challenge Fund.
