Raise: Cumbria Community Forest

Raise is the home and champion of Cumbria Community Forest.

A collective of science-led foresters and ecologists, artists, artisans and academics, we are passionate about trees and woodland - and want to share that passion with others.

We plant trees to improve the environment and address the climate crisis, whilst creating social and economic opportunities to improve health and wellbeing.

We use woodlands as a place to come together, learn and create. 

Through our unique forest culture approach, we connect communities with outdoor spaces, fostering a sense of place and belonging.
