Wildlife gardening projects and activities for when you’re stuck at home

The next few weeks are going to be uncertain for many of us. But one thing is for certain – we’re going to be staying at home a lot more than we are used to. We think it’s now as important as ever to stay connected with nature, so we’ve assembled loads of activities and ideas to help you keep the kids entertained, stay active and help wildlife at the same time.

We’ve got wildlife gardening advice, tips on growing your own food, and activities for kids to do both outdoors and indoors. We’ve also assembled loads of resources from across the web so you never run out of ideas.

So switch off the news for a bit, turn off your phone notifications and get out into your garden. Nature will always be there for us through hard times, as long as we look after it.

We will regularly be adding more activities and posts to this page, so keep checking back to see what’s new!
