This garden was created in less than 3 years and won the award for the best small wildlife garden in 2012
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.
The 2013 Kent Wildlife Gardening Awards is now closed, thank you to all those who have entered their gardens.
Kent Wildlife Trust’s volunteer gardening advisors aim to visit as many entries as possible before the end of August. They recommend gardens for bronze, silver or gold certificates and also give advice. In addition, Gold winners receive one of the Trust’s coveted Wild About Gardens blue plaques and may be put forward for one of our “special awards for gardens of particular merit" such as Best Urban Wildlife Garden, Best School Wildlife Garden, and Best Community Wildlife Project.
Results will be printed in our members' magazine, Wild Kent.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
There are a range of advise sheets available, to see them click here.
