Case Study: Wild Elements

Wild Elements is a social enterprise based in North Wales, dedicated to getting people outdoors and closer to nature in a fun way, through forest schools and outdoor play schemes and community projects and events. It was set up by Thomas Cockbill and Resi Tomat in March 2013. They had previously been working for the National Trust at Penrhyn Castle, near Bangor, Gwynedd, carrying out education activities. When that project finished, they could see a need for nature-based play services in the local area.

Case Study: Our Garden (Brit Growers)

A lively community site in Evanstown near Bridgend, the aptly named ‘Our Garden’ has a wide mix of users from across the Ogmore Valley, and is used daily by local people who go to tend their plot or to simply sit and chat with friends and neighbours. They formerly derelict site was transformed after an approach to the landowner, a housing association.

Valuing Grasslands - Environmental Impact Assessment

Community gardens value their local natural environments and are keen to look after native ecosystems. However, some may overlook the habitat value of grassland.

While grassland may not always look appealing or exciting, some areas contain very active and precious ecosystems which should not be disturbed. For example, they may contain wildflowers that are becoming rarer and support a wide range of insects, mammals and birds of prey that feed on them.
