Objectives

 
The formal objectives of The Forest of Dreams are:
  • To promote, for the benefit of the public, the conservation, protection and improvement of the physical and natural environment in Wales, in particular in Powys. 
  • To advance the education of the public in the traditional folklore, crafts and related skills of indigenous people, in particular of the British Isles.
  • To advance the education of the public in the conservation, protection and improvement of the physical and natural environment in Wales, in particular in Powys.


What this means in practice is that the charity is allowing a valley in Powys to return to its wild state, through natural re-generation of native trees and other flora, as well as tree-planting where appropriate. It also permits low-impact groups to hold events in the valley that celebrate the traditional culture of the British Isles (particularly Celtic culture) and indigenous people everywhere. The charity also strives to instill a love of nature and of traditional ways of life in youth and young people, our successors, who will ultimately inherit the successes and failures of our generation.

 The char







 


We appeal to all who care about re-wilding, woodland, wild land, conservation, education and the crisis in contemporary culture to back us wholeheartedly as we make a vital and urgently-needed gesture of responsibility towards the future, both of the natural world and of humanity itself.

 Management and Maintenance of the land
The Forest of Dreams will carefully manage and maintain the land allowing it to be, in the main, a wild reserve.
 
Public footpaths and rights of way through the land will be maintained. The miles of fencing around the reserve will also need to be regularly checked and kept in good order to keep out neighbouring livestock.
 
Activities of groups allowed to use the land, such as Spirit Horse Foundation, will be low impact and will only use a small area of the land. Click here to find out more about the work of Spirit Horse Foundation
