Rewilding – Blue Campaign

Rewilding Blue Heart

A heartfelt plea to anyone with a garden! Many of us suddenly have lots more time to spend in the garden – please resist the temptation to over-tidy the garden!!
Nature is messy….In the UK we have lost 40% of our wildlife since 1970, but your garden could help reverse this extinction trend.

Sustainable Warminster are promoting the Blue Heart Campaign which encourages urban rewilding:

• Leave a small section of your garden unmown. The extra plant growth will encourage ground dwelling insects that will eat pests and bring in other animals.
• Leave leaflitter piles to give hedgehogs somewhere to sleep.
• Avoid using pesticides, this can severely damage both plants and animals.
• Give wildflowers and weeds space to benefit pollinators.
PUT UP A BLUE HEART to show your support for us and wildlife!

Sustainable Warminster have been busy making Blue Hearts from recycled materials to give away. If you would like to place an order for one, message us on our facebook page or via this website and we will arrange a contact-free exchange.

Or perhaps make your own blue heart out of recycled materials.

Unfortunately we have run out of materials for stakes so perhaps you could find something at home that you could use.


Council Grass Cutting

In Warminster grass cutting of public areas and verges is either the responsibility of Warminster Town Council or Wiltshire Council.
