The initiative, called ‘Natural Buzz’ will be funded by the Welsh Government’s Nature Fund and gives consumers the vouches for wildflower seeds as well as the tools needed to plant and maintain them. Keep Wales Tidy and the HTA are also involved.
It will be launched at the Green Space Wales autumn symposium, held in the restored Orangery in Margam Park, last year’s People’s Choice Green Flag park, on 14 November, which focuses on encouraging the transformation of sterile green spaces into ecologically rich environments.
Speakers will offer insight into creating spectacular and cost effective pollinator friendly wildflower displays from design to establishment with examples of current initiatives and future projects being show cased.
The scheme is in line with the Government's National Pollinator Strategy, published last week, which encourages both consumer and trade landowners to plant more pollinator-friendly plants.
The Minister for Natural Resources today announced £3 million of funding to fund 18 projects tackling declining biodiversity and improving the environment.
