Hedge-fund with a difference -Have you got what it takes to be a warrior?
It’s true ya know, I used to have all manner of little critters visit the Mellow Ground garden, especially in Winter. Early spring would see Mother Hedgehog and usually 2-3 babies snuffle out from under the hedge at the bottom of the garden around dusk, along the lawn and under the gate. Where they went I have no idea, but they came back every evening and I had to be sure the dogs were indoors!
UK wildlife is in decline and the Soil Association are looking for 1,000 Organic Wildlife Warriors to help us save it!
Wildlife is in decline and industrial farming practices are partly responsible. Organic farms, on the other hand, work with nature not against it. They are great for wildlife because:
Organic farming doesn’t rely on harmful synthetic pesticides.
Natural predators are encouraged by maintaining hedgerows and wide field margins.
Mixed farming is encouraged, meaning there’s a diversity of plants and crops for wildlife to thrive on.
Organic farmers use a greater diversity of crops over the years (in rotation) which keeps soil fertile and helps avoid the need for chemicals.- Soil Association.
By joining the Soil Association you’re not only entitled to claim 2 free veg boxes from Abel & Cole (when you sign up for a regular box) you’ll be investing in a “hedge fund” that makes a real difference…
