There are currently very few flowers in our City Centre and consequently barely any pollinators. In collaboration with District Councillor Mandy McNeil, Helen Burridge from the St Albans BID (Business Improvement District) and local schools, our aim is to create a Pollinator Highway to get St Albans buzzing again.
Still in its early planning stages, the first phase of this project will involve installing a number of planters in the seating area around the historic clock tower. 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.
In just a few months time, this courtyard will be jam-packed with flowers, attracting both pollinators and people. Watch this space for updates!
