Sustainability Festival 2021

This year as part of the Sustainability Festival, Wilderhood Watch ran a series of stalls across many of our streets, as well as joining in with the Sustfest Market on May 23rd. Our stalls sold as well as gave away a variety of wildlife related items such as pollinator friendly seeds and seedlings, (including Sunflower seeds for our Great St Albans Sunflower Challenge), and 20mph Hedgehog signs.

We sold knitted hedgehogs for £4:00 each as well as hedgehog signs at the cost price of £7:50. By charging for these as well as our custom made greetings cards (£1:00), we were able to give away our packets of sunflower seeds, along with an assortment of other pollinator friendly seeds and seedlings.

If you couldn’t make it to any of our stalls and you’d like to buy some of our cards, please just email nadia@wilderhoodwatch.org. They’re £1:00 each and left blank for your own message.

We also be handed out Wilder St Albans surveys to carry out so that we could measure how wild we are! Results of the survey should be out soon.

We launched our 2021 Photography Challenge on the first day of Sustfest (please enter!) and have been selling tall variety Sunflower seedlings for £1:00, which you can grow to compete in our Tallest Sunflower Competition. Just send in a photo and the height measurement to nadia@wilderhoodwatch.org once your sunflower is fully grown!
