Nature is under severe threat
Plants and animals are becoming extinct partly because of the way we live our lives, but we can change this.
In our local action group:
We plant trees to:
- Absorb carbon dioxide
- Provide us with oxygen
- Provide shelter to birds and insects
We are planting ‘bee corridors’ which provide pollinators with nectar.
We are asking gardeners and farmers to give up chemicals such as pesticides and weedkillers which kill plants and animals, all of which we need, and we will be showing people how to garden without them.
We want people to feed the soil with organic matter such as compost to stop the destruction of our soils.
We are beginning a hedgehog preservation project, mapping where hedgehogs have been seen at Henfield Garden Club meetings.
