Billion Seed Challenge

Sun, Oct 31st 2021 at 10:00 am -

We planted seeds to contribute to the 'Billion Seeds Challenge' which highlights the importance of the environment and green spaces. See more information below.


Clive Rutland,  Chairman of our Community Service Committee said  "Rotary and a host of organisations from across civil society in the UK are supporting the #BillionSeedChallenge, to highlight the importance of the environment and green spaces and the relevance to  COP26, the UN Climate Change Conference in Glasgow which started on 31 October 2021.

The #BillionSeedChallenge aims to show the love and appreciation of our outdoor spaces, which have been so vital for us during the last 18 months.

By planting wildflowers to brighten up our parks, verges and playgrounds with incredible splashes of colour, we're showing how communities are uniting for their environment.

New Forest Rotary Club accepted the Challenge and planted about 20,000 wild flower seeds in Totton, Brockenhurst (North Street) and Marchwood (in association and co-operation with the school) on 31st October, the opening day of COP26."
