‘Rewilding Roborough Fields’ is a venture started in 2020 by Water Gems’ director Nick Benge.
With Nick’s knowledge and experience, along with the skills and expertise of the team, the aim is to give the ten-acre plot of land in North Devon a new energy, creating a biodiversity hotspot for both plant and animal communities.
Our plan is to create a dense mosaic of Devonbank hedgerows, wildflower meadows and pools. We aim to cram in as much habitat into the space as possible and then watch all the native plants and animals move in – “Build it and they will come.”
You can find out more about this project by visiting the Roborourgh Rewilders website, where you can also become a Friend of the Fields. Alternatively, contact Nick directly on 07734 386243, or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Below are some recent photographs of the plants and wildlife that are now thriving in the fields after only a few months since the pond and planting work.
