Create your own Greenspace

One of the best things you can do, as a community, group, school or individual, is create your own place for wildlife.
It's fun, and you can even get fit doing it! Transform your own garden or get involved with a local project or site - make a space for wildlife and help increase the biodiversity of your green spaces.
