Current projects we are involved in (in conjunction with the Natural Heritage Service of the Council) include :
Getting honey bees back into Cammo. We will be building an enclosure in the walled garden in Jan/Feb of 2019 and installing a hive in the spring. Anyone wanting to join the Cammo Bee Group please get in touch.
A big wildflower project in all three of the big fields. This consists of cutting the grass back hard in big rectangles in the middle of the fields, sowing the areas with yellow rattle to weaken the grass and then planting with meadow cranesbill, hedge woundwort, cowslips, knapweed, bird’s foot trefoil, field scabious and ox eye daisy in the spring and autumn. This will all be done by the end of 2019.
Developing signs and way markers to significantly increase the amount and quality of information for visitors. Interpretation at Cammo House ruin, canal and stables along with fingerposts at main path junctions to be completed in 2019. Other improvements to follow later.

Possible further hedge planting and a wetland project.
The council are also in the process of appointing a contractor to mend or replace any of the boundary walls and fences that are currently broken down. This should be completed by the end of 2019.
The Council are also designing a small car park inside the north gate to be constructed in 2019 and will later consider options for expanding the south car park.
