The Wildlife Gardening Forum's Vision


We want more people to:

  • discover how important gardens can be for wildlife
  • find enjoyment, interest and health benefits from gardening with wildlife in mind
  • use gardens to give children a richer environment for learning and play
  • understand how they can adapt their gardening to provide valuable new habitats for wildlife

We want people to create more gardens that:

  • are beautiful and peaceful places to enjoy
  • contain habitats for wildlife complementing those in nearby gardens and green spaces
  • form a green network to help protect us from flooding and overheating
  • extend the resources available for wildlife in a changing global environment

We want to raise awareness of the environmental benefits of gardening with wildlife in mind by encouraging:

  • the use of materials from sustainably-managed sources, such as peat-free compost
  • gardening techniques that help wildlife to adapt to climate change
  • the home-growing of food in an environmentally-friendly way, for healthier living and to reduce food miles
  • the avoidance of invasive plant species or products demonstrably damaging to wildlife
  • less intensive garden management
  • reduced use of concrete, paving and decking in gardens - surfaces that support little or no wildlife
