PeCAN's central mission is to help Petersfield and surrounding villages reduce their carbon emissions and protect nature, which we do by leading and supporting decarbonisation and nature projects in the community. Our community-led initiatives work to mitigate climate change and minimise biodiversity loss in a variety of ways, from supporting local wildlife and habitats, to schools outreach and awareness-raising events.

In the winter of 2020, you helped us to plant fruit 80 trees in gardens around Petersfield. This increased to more than 300 in 2021, to over 500 in 2022 and this year the fruit tree project is back due to popular demand, aiming to plant 800 trees and 2.5km of new hedging.
