Recently, we purchased bee-friendly perennial plants from local garden centre Three Willows for individuals and community groups to plant in their gardens, encouraging more wildlife friendly planting in and around Bungay.

In the past, Sustainable Bungay have organised permaculture training events, tree/orchard planting days, wildlife well-being walks around the local area and a small group of volunteers developed and maintained Bungay Library Garden for many years.

Bungay Community Bees was an offshoot project from Sustainable Bungay that enabled the purchase of bee hives and training of bee-keepers locally. The remaining funds from this project were donated to the Holton Pits Preservation Project to help save this vital wildlife and community resource for the people of Holton, Halesworth. Local communities supporting each other.

We helped to plant an apple orchard at Greengrow in 2009. Look at it now…

As Sustainable Bungay, we are also delighted to be able to support other community organisations, charities and trusts with their work to conserve and support local wildlife, including the Falcon Meadow Community Trust, The Conservation Volunteers, River Waveney Trust and Suffolk Wildlife Trust. By collaborating, sharing time, effort and expertise, together we can achieve more.
