July News Update

Here’s a quick round up of what we’ve been up to lately, and what’s to come!


Gardening for Bees

This post is based on our popular social media series, Gardening for Bees. We’ve collected it all together, in one post so it’s full of quick tips and ideas if you want more bees (and pollinators) in your garden!


Seedling Video: How to Grow a Mini Wildflower Meadow at home

As part of a video series, Wigan STEAM asked us to create a short video for their new Seedling project – How to Create a Mini Wildflower Meadow at Home. We hope you find it useful!


Wigan Wildlife Watch – Video Ideas

Wigan Wildlife Watch is a 2 part project with our first part being a short film, made by people in Wigan to celebrate our local wildlife in the borough.

We aim to release the final video this Summer 2021, with submissions collected by the end of May.

We’re looking for videos of what you have spotted when out and about.
What did you see at our nature reserves, woodlands, or at home?


March – News Update

Here’s a quick update for what we’ve been up to in March. We’ve now been running this campaign for just over a month. Time has really flown.

As of today, we’ve had well over 700 requests for free wildflower seed packs and we’ve delivered over 300 of these already around the borough. We’re going as fast as we can, but please be patient, we are small team! And you have until end of April to sow them really.

We actually had to remove the form from our website, as I guess the post went viral with over 400 sign ups in 1 day. We’re now working to fulfill these requests as soon as we can.
