Gardening for Wildlife



Gardening the Greener Way

We all need nature, but nature needs us now more than ever before.

Are you keen to garden the greener way?

By donating even a part of your gardens for wildlife you can make a difference.

We could create our own ‘community’ nature reserve in the heart of Steyning,  Upper Beeding and Bramber!

We have also been lucky enough to be visited by some of the leaders in this field during our Greening Books.

For our first Green Books session, we asked gardening guru Charles Dowding to talk about his book on No Dig Gardening.

For our second Green Books event we had the wonderful Dave Goulson talking about his bestselling book  “The Garden Jungle – Gardening to Save the Planet.”

For our fifth Green Books talk, Sue Stuart-Smith spoke with Paul Hannam about her new book “The Well Gardened Mind.”  The book investigates the magic that many gardeners have known for years – how working with nature can radically transform our health, wellbeing and confidence.
