Heather planted on Bowden Down

Some of the volunteers

Three hundred native heather plants were planted on Bowden Down by about a dozen volunteers after the village coffee morning on 6 October. The plants were purchased using a grant from Brentor Parish Council.  This planting is part of the project to regenerate the Down and bring it back to its original habitat of lowland heath.  More work will continue this autumn and winter in conjunction with the Tavistock Taskforce, using funding received from the Co-op Good Causes Fund.
