Our Local Places for Nature scheme is currently on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic. Please contact [email protected] for more information. 

Transform an unloved area into a garden that will benefit both nature and your community.

We want to develop or restore ‘spaces for nature’, creating a wild garden filled with pollinator-friendly plants and a variety of other wildlife habitats.

But the aim is to improve people’s health and well-being of our communities too. We want to bring communities together, get more people involved in volunteering and connect them with nature.

The package will include:

  • 40m2 of wildflower turf
  • Five native fruit trees
  • Wildlife friendly tree pack (105 trees)
  • Habitat boxes and bug hotels
  • Two benches made of recycled plastic (1.2m wide)
