Commenting ahead of the sustainability day, Iwan Gwyn, Manager of The Woodworks Garden Centre said:
“The Woodworks Garden Centre and Café team has been working in partnership with the North Wales Wildlife Trust for over 12 months. We now sell Hawthorn hedging that the Trust grows at its site in Maeshafn nursery near Mold, with each specimen sold, a donation from the Garden Centre is made to the trust. More tree species, such as Field Maple and Hazel are currently being grown and will be available for our customers to buy at The Woodworks next year.
Iwan Gwyn continues
“Building on this partnership, we decided to invite The North Wales Wildlife Trust to hold our very first “sustainability day” at our Garden Centre in Mold – hopefully it will be the first of many! A great day for the whole family or individuals with a passion for nature.
“With sustainability and protecting the environment becoming an increasingly important topic, we at The Woodworks (and P&A Group as a whole) are committed to playing our part and supporting the wider community, and, along with our solar power, biomass heating and recycling commitments, our partnership with The Wildlife Trust will support an even better environment for our future. We can’t wait to welcome The North Wales Wildlife Trust and the community to our Garden Centre.”
The North Wales Wildlife Trust manages 35 nature reserves in North Wales. It also works with other organisations and landowners to protect and connect wildlife sites across the county and inspire local communities and young people to care for wildlife where they live.
