NEWS: 5 million reasons to go green
The National Lottery are offering a cool £5 million for developing 'Breathing Places' - in your local area.
I think that this is an excellent opportunity for any budding conservationists to actually 'get involved'!
My back garden is already an oasis for wildlife. The landlords are shockingly bad at maintaining the property or providing the tools to do so. The result is a large space with all sorts of chest hight wild plants including weeds which provides homes for bugs, butterflies and, erm, well a few rats, yeuch. Hay ho - all creatures great and, er, ugly.
On a serious note - I do hope that even those inspired by the financial incentive to do more will still make whatever changes they can to their local environment.
If you get involved let us know about your project. We will be interested to see how you get on.
