Dragon started life in 2003 by recycling second-hand books
to raise money for regenerating British woodland and hedgerows.
We are one of a new breed of ethical organisations that are
working in a number of ways to help meet community
needs, to protect and regenerate endangered
habitat and to promote and finance projects that employ sustainable
systems of land management. Combining the co-operative
movements commitments to social responsibility with a commitment
to environmental responsibility.
build conservation tree nurseries from scratch, collect local seed
and propagate trees to regenerate woodland and hedgerow habitat.
From small beginnings in 2003 we now have two nurseries in Devon
that can produce up to 20,000 trees per year.
Books are sold in our webshop.
All profits go into sustainable British woodland conservation projects.Badly
damaged books are recycled into new paper or board, some are composted
to feed our nursery trees and now we are also using
some to grow woodland Oyster mushrooms – nothing
We also sell a small range of top quality woodland and bushcraft
hand tools at very competitive prices.
