Helen Neave

Helen Neave
Biodiversity

Helen and her family have always been passionate about nature and the environment, and in 2011 they bought some land and planted 20,000 trees. The explosion in biodiversity triggered by their young woodland inspired Helen and her husband, Christopher, to do it again, on a larger scale, and this time as a business – and ‘Make it Wild’ was born! They now own over 200 acres in North Yorkshire, managed entirely for the benefit of Nature.
