Grown in Britain
Grown in Britain is a movement that aims to:
- Create a new and stronger market ‘pull’ for the array of products derived from our forests and woodlands.
- Develop private sector funding that supports the planting and management of forests and woodlands through funding from corporates as part of their corporate social responsibility.
- Connect together and harness the positive energy and feelings towards our forests and woodlands that many in our society share to create a strong ‘wood culture’. A wood culture that captures personal health and fitness, well-being, community and encourages use of more wood and forest products.
Grown in Britain has cross Government support and the potential to make a lasting difference to the forests and woodlands of Britain.
