Wildlife Gardening - How to make a Community Meadow

Creating a Community Meadow is a great way to create a buzz in your local area.

Creating a meadow full of colour and the sounds of summer is a simple way to bring people together to do something that will make a real difference to our bees, butterflies, hoverflies and other wildlife.

Community meadows provide important habitat for wild pollinators and are a wonderful way to engage local communities.

You don’t need to be an expert to make a Community Meadow. We’ve included practical tips on what to plant, how to plant it, ideas on how to fund your project, and how to celebrate and enjoy your Community Meadow.

We hope that you will find these factsheets helpful. Each community meadow factsheet is downloadable from the side bar to the right.
