ONE GARDEN AT A TIME
We’re a group of people from the Stratford area who are concerned about habitat and biodiversity loss. We believe that there’s huge potential in home gardens to conserve and restore local biodiversity by putting native plants back where they belong. We’re working to create a local network which will enable the sharing of resources, native plant seeds and seedlings.
PLANT IT AND THEY WILL COME
Biodiversity is essential for a healthy ecosystem, however it is declining at an alarming rate. Conversion of natural areas for human use inevitably leads to habitat loss, so making use of existing green spaces is crucial. This is where we can have a significant impact.
Lawns, and even most home gardens, don’t meet the needs of our local insects, birds and other wildlife that have coevolved with local native plants for thousands of years.
By providing these plants, we can support our local birds and insects. With each native plant added, we’re offering immediate support to our local ecosystem.
