Sussex Horse Rescue Trust is a charitable project, working to rehabilitate rescue horses, ponies and donkeys. We believe in enriching the lives of equines in our care, regardless of background, age or condition, so that they may lead a happier, and more fulfilled life, and, where ever possible, be better placed for rehoming. Join our challenge to plant 12,000 trees and hedgerow plants at Sussex Horse Rescue Trust, Hempstead Farm, Uckfield, this November….. and help develop our natural wildlife hub between Views Wood, Hempstead Wood and Buxted Park.

At the heart of our land development strategy, lies another mission – to enhance habitat for birds, flowering meadow and fen species, bees, moths, butterflies, bats, and reptiles.

Working with Sussex Wildlife Trust and The Woodland Trust, our team will be planting trees and shrubs such as Hazel, Willow, Elder, Hawthorn, and Field Maple, complimenting the rare and protected species on and adjacent to our site, and the number of ancient trees on site with significant value for wildlife.

Sussex Horse Rescue Trust aims to work more closely with the local community by expanding our educational capacity around wildlife, as well as developing a more nourishing environment for the equines in our care.

Please come along and join our team, to help in the challenge of planting 12,000 trees and hedgerow plants this November.

Email to register your interest and receive our volunteers mail out for more information about the campaign.

Time commitment: Anything from a few hours to a couple of weeks. Planting will take place during November and December 2017.
