Saturday May 4th 2013 saw the Grand Opening of Adam Henson’s Rare Breeds Farm Park Conservation Area and ecodek were delighted to be invited and involved in this high profile project.
Adam Henson and Ellie Harrison from BBC’s Countryfile were hosting the event with AGRII, an organisation delivering agri-intelligence and innovation to the farming industry.
The conservation area explains about the importance of biodiversity and the hard work that farmers are undertaking to conserve and promote wildlife in our countryside. It shows the various ways that farming enhances the environment and wildlife. A broad range of plants which are beneficial to insects and birds have been planted including an area of pollen and nectar rich plants, wild grasses, beetle banks and a pond.
Children and school groups will be able to visit the area and enjoy pond dipping whilst standing on a wonderful slip resistant ecodek platform! ecodek is ideal for this use as anywhere children are playing and working must be suitably safe and durable. In addition, ecodek was included in this prestigious project because of the excellent environmental properties of the product and being MADE IN BRITAIN means less impact on the planet when the end user is in the Cotswolds!
The event culminated with Countryfile’s Ellie Harrison standing on the ecodek pond dipping platform to cut the ribbon and declare the area OPEN!
The ecodek team are immensely proud to be part of such a worthy BRITISH project. Click here for more information about the farm.
