Protected Growing

In a 14Ha setting we have 12Ha of glasshouse in West Sussex. The land surrounding the glasshouses is being actively managed for the benefit of wildlife and our growing operation.

We are managing wildflower areas to provide nectar and pollen for insects. Some of these insects provide natural pest control for the crop growing inside the glass.

As with all our sites, we are now only cutting our hedgerows every other year to promote the growth of fruits and nuts to provide food for birds and other wildlife.

We manage a reedbed and ditch system for the benefit of a transient pollution of water voles and we also have evidence of harvest mice nesting in these areas.

All the conservation management work provides food and shelter for wildlife and forms corridors to link with the wider landscape.

Team Vitacress actively monitor wildlife here through regular walks on designated wildlife walks across the site.
