How you can help


Look after your own garden and learn from this site

The Wildlife Gardening Forum works to help more people appreciate how important gardens are for wildlife. Hopefully, this will help people manage their gardens better for wildlife, alongside their other gardening aims, so it would be great if you find this site useful and apply your new knowledge. Keep a close look on what you find in your gardenand let us know if things go wel - or if you have problems.


Spread the word

Please tell your friends and neighbours about wildlife in gardens, and introduce them to this site. The more people understand "how gardens work", the better our urban wildlife will be.  The more people appreciate the importance of gardens, the more likely the topic is to rise up to the level of government awareness, at national as well as local level.


Join in

Another way to help is by joining the Forum. There is no cost, but as well as receiving news and conference invitations, the more people who are members, the more notice decision-makers will have to take of what we are saying. You can also join our flourishing Twitter community (@WLGForum), and Wildlife Gardening Forum Facebook Group and post every-day news and pictures of what you find.


Practical help

Please contact us if you would like to help in a practical way. We are looking for good photos (and other media) to augment our Gallery (under construction) and Garden Wildlife section. You could also help by sending news of what you or your organisation is doing, or passing on links to new publications or research you come across. You might even like to give a presentation at a future conference, or write an article for our newsletter. If you have a particular interest, you could contribute through one of our special interest groups:

  • Research
  • Plants and planting
  • Horticulture trade
  • Education and Training
  • Human Health and wellbeing
  • Planners and developers

Local groups

Why not get a local wildlife gardening group together? We would love to hear of how you get on, and might be able to help with finding speakers.  You could organise a street to manage theuir gardens cooperatively for wildlife, and this would be a boon to amphibians and hedgehogs.
