Wotton Area Climate Action Network
We are a community-led Climate Action Group serving Wotton-under-Edge and the surrounding areas. We aim to help residents and businesses to reduce their carbon emissions with a goal of helping our area become carbon neutral by 2030.
No Mow May
During May we are encouraging residents with a garden to leave the mower in the shed during the month of May so that any wildflowers within the grass have chance to bloom and provide a vital nectar source for pollinating insects.
We're also encouraging Wotton Town Council and the surrounding parishes to leave some public areas un-mown during May and work with us this autumn to oversow wildflower seeds that will help create wildflower patches in 2022 and beyond.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org to talk to us about No Mow May or wildflower areas.

Would you like to make a difference to carbon emissions in our local area? We rely on volunteers to help run our events, plan what's next and publicise our work. We'd love to welcome you if you could spare any time, even if it's just a couple of hours a month. We do not discriminate against anyone for any reason and welcome involvement from all.
