Wildlife Gardening Champions is an exciting new project we are running with huge support from our Wilder St Albans Officer Heidi Carruthers.
Our aim is to train 15 Wilderhood Watch volunteers to give expert advice on how to garden in a super wildlife friendly way. Residents who live either close by or on a Wilderhood Watch street will be able to invite a Wildlife Gardening Champion into their garden to give them practical ideas on how to help their local wildlife thrive.
All Wildlife Gardening Champions will be registered Wildlife Trust volunteers, and will have completed an RHS course in wildlife gardening, funded by the Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust.
Here are some of our Wildlife Gardening Champions clearing a large plot of land behind the George Street cafe in St Albans. We hope to turn this into a paradise for wildlife, honing our gardening skills in the process and creating an exemplar garden for future clients to view.
