Wild About Gardens

Gardens can be wonderful places for wildlife. It really is easy and inexpensive to create a mosaic of wildlife rich areas - from a simple window box to an imaginatively planted vegetable plot.

Wild About Gardens is Kent Wildlife Trust’s own wildlife friendly gardening project. Our ultimate aim is to make Kent the wildlife friendly garden of England.

Any garden can be wildlife friendly and provide those important stepping stones our wildlife needs to enable it to move around our increasingly busy county.

Our Awards scheme celebrates the success of people and groups who are already gardening in a wildlife friendly way whilst at the same time providing encouragement and support for those just starting. Take a look at our Wild Kent magazine for more details of our great Kent wildlife friendly gardeners and their gardens.

We are grateful to Amicus Horizons for their sponsorship of the 2015 Awards Scheme. For more information please download the attached entry form below or call in to one of our Visitor Centres to collect a hard copy.

Our talks and workshops show you how easy it is to create a haven for wildlife in even the smallest plot.

We are keen to hear from gardeners and/or enthusiasts who may be interested in training to become a volunteer advisor. For details contact Maureen Rainey on 01622 662012 or maureen.rainey@kentwildlife.org.uk.
