Protecting, Promoting & Regenerating

The Countryside Regeneration Trust protects, promotes, and regenerates our land and all life on it, by bringing people and properties together to make everyone a friend of the countryside.

With farmland wildlife in decline, small farms are struggling to survive, and the future of our wild spaces is in jeopardy, our work has become more important than ever.

The skylark has declined by 50% over the past 40 years across Europe.
The small blue butterfly has declined in the UK by 30% since the 1970s.
Hedgehog numbers have declined by more than half since 2000.

How you can help

Our Impact

In the past six months the Countryside Regeneration Trust has achieved:

1,416

hours spent on CRT farms by volunteers.

149

trees planted on our sites.

305

hours of wildlife surveys carried out across our sites.

Mosaic education on the farm

At the heart of our work is education. We saw a need for an education programme that pieced together the mosaic of farming, wildlife and countryside for children. Each session is designed for children to explore nature and farming in a safe and educational environment, on Pierrepont Farm, Surrey. Reconnecting children to nature and shaping a positive future for all.
