A message from Stephen Pitcher, Director for Garden at Homebase
It has been so wonderful to see our customers getting out and enjoying their gardens more than ever during lockdown. And while it’s been brilliant for our mental and physical health, it’s also had a really positive impact on the environment.
The Great British Green Up is our way of inviting the nation to keep up the good work by learning more about biodiversity and the ways we can support it from our own outdoor spaces – no matter how big or small.
Whether you were born with green fingers or have just potted your first plant, there are all sorts of simple things you can do to ‘green up’ your back garden, balcony or courtyard and protect the homes of hundreds of bugs, bees, birds and other species living there.
As well as sharing handy tips and tricks with our customers, we’re committing to help communities all over the UK continue boost their biodiversity by pledging to support one local project in every region by the end of 2021. If you’ve got a local project you’d like our support with, please contact us at [email protected].
