Enjoy nature on your doorstep?
We are all enjoying our green spaces more than ever, but we don’t all have a garden!
That’s why we are creating wildflower meadows on your doorstep so that you can enjoy a bit of nature close to home
97% of UK wildflower meadows have been lost since 1947, yet wildflowers are increasingly appreciated for their benefits like adding biodiversity & capturing carbon to improve air quality.
Did you know that solitary bees need to stop and rest every so often?
And in our built-up neighbourhoods they can’t always find somewhere for a breather!
Improving our engagement with nature brings us lots of benefits, enjoying beautiful spaces and places has a positive effect on our well-being and it’s encouraging to know that we are helping out a little with the challenges we face as a result of climate change.

The project will also build skills within our local communities as we bring on board Wildflower Rangers to spend six months learning how to manage wildflowers, organise community seed sowings, seed harvesting and build engagement and leadership skills.
