Biodiversity to Anfield newbuilds

To encourage owners and renters of newbuild properties near Anfield stadium to create a wildlife corridor to neighbouring gardens and parks, and encourage biodiversity in to our barron gardens.

The newbuilds of Anfield bring new life to the area, however our gardens are a different story! Endless rows of fences, concreted gardens, plastic lawns and fewer planting are a disaster for our local wildlife who need our help. I live in one of these homes and desperately want to make a small difference and educate others regarding the importance of biodiversity. I would love to produce a factsheet for newbuilds in the area with free, native wildflowers, or a native, bee-friendly plants to give away. Many neighbours won't realise that we have a thriving bat population here, a seasonal swallow population, lots of native British birds and even some birds of prey! We have a great, underused green area in the middle of the estate and I would love to buy and set up a marquee to give away the factsheets and plants over a weekend period, perhaps with the support of other, local wildflower projects.

What we'll deliver:

  • Provide free wildflower seeds or bee friendly plants to neighbouring newbuilds
  • Create a "importance of nature" factsheet for all who attend
  • Hire a marquee or tent to invite neighbours to visit over a weekend period to collect their free seeds or plants
  • Potentially post free seeds with factsheets to neighboring newbuilds

Why it's a great idea:

The project would raise awareness of the importance of creating wildlife friendly spaces in our gardens, why they are important and how they can benefit the local area, encouraging individuals to make a long-term commitment to nature and our planet.

Steps to get it done:


Anfield is a deprived area meaning locals, understandably, have little in the way of motivation and time to even consider making space for nature, a small project like this would hopefully make a big difference.
