The effects of unseasonal and extreme weather on plants and wildlife can be regularly seen. Our gardens are precious land that can be cultivated to help fight climate change, especially in urban areas. Our gardens can help control temperatures, mitigating the effects of extreme heat or cold. They can absorb rainwater that would otherwise runoff. They have the potential to become some of our best nature reserves, supporting local wildlife. Having a natural healthy garden helps support human health, easing stress.
Gardens are one of the few significant legacies to leave future generations, it’s time to prepare these spaces for uncertain climate conditions. All this is possible if we don't slap astroturf everywhere.
Join the campaign to educate and legislate protecting our soil health and rejecting toxic products that kill our environment.
