Working with people from our local community not only enables people to nurture nature but nurture themselves by connecting to nature. We are also passionate about bringing real environmental change by gathering people together. Rewilding can succeed through positive human intervention. Thanks also to the team at Charterhouse Accountants, who came and volunteered as part of Lindengate’s Corporate Volunteering programme.
Having the opportunity of being able to plant the native species; meadow plants, wildflowers, sedges, aquatic marginals, woodpiles, trees and shrubs from A Rewilding Britain Landscape enable us to support a greater diversity of insects, birds and mammals within our nature reserve. We are delighted to have the decomposing wood as it returns important nutrients to the soil supporting new growth whilst creating habitats for insects, mammals and birds. The endangered stag beetles can also complete their life cycles in the decomposing wood habitats. The wildflowers donated provide pollinators and insects with food and spaces to breed.
