What we do

This video was one of Tim Selman’s last initiatives for MMCLT, funded by the Green Recovery Challenge Fund. The aim was to explain Middle Marches’ vision directly, without the filter of the written word.

We would like to thank Arthur Sharples and Robin Fellows-Weir for bringing it to life.

MMCLT’s objectives are to:

  • Acquire and manage land for Nature Recovery
  • Work with and support landowners large and small
  • Support local food production initiatives
  • Work with multiple organisations, communities and individuals
  • Act as an advice Hub

See links to further information below.
