The Steering Group
Moor Barton Wilding land and project are actively managed by a cross disciplinary steering group, including founder Robin Bowman. The steering group is at the hub of all that happens at Moor Barton. These nature and rewilding loving individuals from different parts of the country bring skills, expertise and passion from their different professions and life experiences. This committed group holds and drives the vision of Moor Barton Wilding, making the decisions (and doing the work!) about everything from funding applications to species reintroductions.
The Moor Barton Tribe
The tribe are our hands on, and in, the earth. It is the Moor Barton tribe who spend countless hours and days on the land; undertaking ecological surveys, taking out the self seeded larch trees that threaten to shade out the young broadleaf trees, strimming trails to maintain our transitional edge environments, bashing bracken to steady its efforts to take over, opening glades to let in the light, spreading seed to bring more diversity and planting fruit and nut trees to feed us and other creatures. The list goes on and on!
One of the most important jobs carried out by the Moor Barton tribe is the hosting of our community volunteer days and weekends, when much of this work gets done. These weekends are also when we cook, eat and spend time together around the fire playing music and sharing stories.
We are supported by a large pool of volunteers who bring a myriad of skills, experiences and ideas to Moor Barton Wilding. You’re invited to join us! If you’d like to come along to a community volunteer day or weekend, please send us an email to let us know and we we'll send you all of the information you need.
