Sat. 18 June, 11am, One Planet Living Workshop - 'Land Use & Wildlife' at the Moulsecoomb Forest Garden.
With twelve arriving by bike or walking to this hidden space we arrived by 11am, for a talk about this local wildlife project by Warren Carter, and reflections on what could be achieved in Hanover & Elm Grove taken forward in a group discussion with by Kristoffer Hewitt (Natural England, & Sussex Wildlife Trust) and Marian (Natural England).
We considered how we could "re-wild" and make a healthy green urban environment, helping to counter local air pollution, and improve personal and collective well-being with greener landscape. Issues of flooding and the opportunities presented by the parking developments in Hanover & Elm Grove all were considered. Tree planting and bird boxes were a keen focus along the positive impact that green roofa dn growing walls could make, and finally the need for a full audit of the green spaces that exist or could be created in our community.
Building upon the Vision set out at our launch workshop, our action planning was then taken forward with informed and enthusiastic discussion to create a more sustainable natural environment, part of our Action Plan for One Planet Living in Hanover & Elm Grove.
