Conserving our environment is preserving nature.
Gardening for Nature
The United Kingdom is home to an estimated 24 million gardens with every city/town and village having public green spaces.
Our wildlife, unfortunately, is in steep decline and we have lost 50% in the last five decades with one in ten of the surviving species remaining at risk of extinction in the UK.
One of the drivers for this deterioration is similar to part of the decline of the red fox, which is habitat loss caused by urban sprawl.
The UK is deficient of affordable housing, and the planning requirements for new builds have been relaxed as a consequence.
We are now seeing more of our wildlife green spaces being swallowed up by housing developments.
