Eight fun projects helping the UK boost biodiversity – FFA

1. Earthwatch’s ‘mini forest’ revolution

A novel method to tree planting is taking root within the UK and past, providing an thrilling answer to the biodiversity disaster. 

Pioneering the method is Earthwatch Europe, an environmental charity based mostly in Oxford, which is creating tiny forests throughout the UK – some no larger than six parking areas. 

Relatively than merely planting timber, Earthwatch creates the circumstances for a neighborhood of coexisting, interacting organisms (together with timber, shrubs, moss, fungi, micro organism, bugs and animals) to flourish. 

The charity has planted greater than 150 tiny forests, with the goal of planting 500 by 2030.
