Latest Project Updates

Whether or not your street is a Pollinator Highway, you can still make sure your garden is pollinator friendly by following these garden tips!

Our Wilderhood Watch stall was very popular at the Warwick Road Street Party on the 8th September. Lots of residents have now pledged to create or maintain Hedgehog Holes in their garden fences as part of their new Hedgehog Street project! If you have a Hedgehog Hole in your fence, remember to register it on the Hedgehog Street website.

We are currently collaborating with District Councillor Mandy McNeil, Helen Burridge from the St Albans BID (Business Improvement District) and local schools to install a Pollinator Highway in St Albans City Centre, a project funded by the St Albans BID. Local garden designer, St Albans Friends of the Earth member and Wilderhood Watch member Amanda Yorwerth will be creating the planting scheme and overseeing the maintenance of the site involving Wilderhood Watch members and local school children.

Check out our most recent Hedgehog Street project development – a solar powered camera inside one of our Hedgehog Houses on Lancaster Road!
