30 Days Wild 2019 – Day Five.


twt-30-days-wild_countdown_05Day 5: Today is World Environment Day. A day when people are inspired to do something for the planet, either locally, nationally or globally. 2019’s theme is air pollution. You can help #BeatAirPollution by taking the bus to work, or walk or cycle. Turn your engine off when stationary, reduce meat consumption or switching lights and electronics off when not in use.

I shall of course be taking the bus and walking to work. How about you?

In conjunction with World Environment Day, Friends of the Earth, have a campaign to double UK tree cover. Trees help slow climate change by absorbing harmful Co2 and are also home to many animal species. I’ve been debating whether to buy a sapling for the yarden but I am not sure how it would fare in a pot? The Woodland Trust have a good selection of UK species to chose from.

What do you think, should I buy a tree? If so what type?

Thanks for reading, and stay wild!

  1. I believe hawthorns are one of the best you can add to a garden – for pollinators and birds as a range of insects use hawthorn, it’s a food source in spring for insects and provides food for birds in autumn. I don’t know how well they grow in pots though.
