Aenon has recently registered to begin the Eco Church Award process and so, every so often, environmental snippets or tips will appear in our monthly newsletter and additionally, more information will be put on this website.
So here are July’s tips!
– Consider your shopping habits…think about individual items of food – where does it come from? could you have bought it more locally? does it have lots of unnecessary packaging?
– If you have a garden or a patio, or yard (even very small patch) make it more welcoming for wildlife- for butterflies, bees, hedgehogs etc.
– Try and cut out using as much single use plastic as you can- buy a water bottle & coffee cup and take them out with you for example.
We are currently in the process of applying for a Local Places for Nature starter package to help us create a small garden / raised bed area on the higher area of the rear car-park. If successful, it will contain edible flowering plants, potted fruit shrubs, habitat boxes, and some gardening tools.
Thanks to the small group of volunteers who tend to current flower and grassed area, but this will be a welcome addition as we are in an urban area, and it is a chance for us to give wildlife a helping hand.
