Wales witnesses green esurgence as Keep Wales Tidy launches free “Local Places for Nature” garden packs

Renowned for their scenic landscape and green spaces, Pembrokeshire and Ceredigion are set to become even greener. The leading Welsh environmental charity, Keep Wales Tidy, offers communities across the country a chance to revamp and transform their local areas with FREE garden packages.

Launched in 2020, Keep Wales Tidy’s “Local Places for Nature” scheme already boasts a legacy of over a thousand gardens across Wales, from orchards to vegetable and wildlife gardens. The project has involved a range of community groups, from sports clubs and schools to health boards and councils. Local Places for Nature garden packages offer an opportunity for groups of all sizes and skill levels to come together and improve our local green spaces, enhancing our biodiversity and improving everyday lives for the local community.

 The garden packages are more than juts equipment, instead offering groups a holistic experience, equipped with:

  • Native plants to boost local biodiversity.
  • Essential tools and materials for gardening.
  • Expert advice on garden setup.
  • Continued support from the heart of Keep Wales Tidy’s committed team.

Owen Derbyshire, Chief Executive for Keep Wales Tidy, stated, “The gardens aren’t just ecological hubs. They’re platforms for community cohesion, boosting mental and emotional well-being. We’re geared up for lots of interest in the coming months, so we encourage early applications.”

Those eager to improve their communities, and the environment, can apply for their free garden package on the Keep Wales Tidy website www.keepwalestidy.cymru/nature  This sustainable initiative, funded by Welsh Government, is part of a wider ‘Local Places for Nature’ programme, focusing on creating, restoring, and enhancing nature ‘on your doorstep’.
