Wild Acres Summer Evening

Wild Acres Community Project is a vibrant, land based, sustainable community with shared values and ideas.

Nature’s profound impact on our well-being, both in the short and long term, is widely acknowledged. Wild Acres Community Project CIC emerged amidst the pandemic in the Severn Vale, providing a haven for local communities and beyond to engage actively in diverse land-based, eco-friendly activities.

This includes the growing of vegetables and other useful plants, conservation projects, recycling initiatives, art, craft and Healthy eating.

Our work is based on a strong set of shared values which are Honesty, integrity, truth, kindness, sharing passion, creativity, love, art and music. Where people feel safe, listened to, calm, welcome and warm. A community collective where people feel a sense of team, with friendships that reduce isolation. Putting the next generation first through respecting nature. Exploring ideas together, looking on the bright side and being supportive
