Rewildchew, an Introduction
The Climate and Nature Emergency working party from Chew Magna Parish Council have launched a Community project called “rewildchew”
To share information and ideas to adapt our gardens to help wildlife thrive
To create wildlife corridors by using the gardens as “stepping stones”, to allow wildlife to move along corridors
To increase biodiversity
We have a number of interested residents in our parish and through social media channels we have been approached by individuals from other villages. We hope that through these contacts and the Community Forum we can expand the project into the wider Chew Valley.
At this stage our contact will be mostly digital, however in the future we plan to run meetings, workshops, garden visits and other events to support each other. As we develop the project we would like to engage with farmers and other landowners to create a Green Infrastructure across the Valley.
Join us – if you have a garden, no matter how big or small, do something for wildlife:
How can you help?
Grow plants for pollinators
Use peat-free compost or make and use home compost
Go chemical free
Choose organic seeds, seedlings and plants
Let your grass grow
Create a wildlife pond
Use the drop down menu to find itemised information on the above!
Under the present pandemic conditions, our contact will be mostly digital but in the future we plan to run meetings, workshops and visits. If you want to contact us in the meantime, our email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
