How a crowdfund led to a new vision
We have been custodians of the crowdfund following the Youth Strike 4 Climate rally on College Green led by Greta Thunberg in 2020. Now our role is to co-ordinate an innovative partnership between our charity, Bristol Cathedral, Bristol City Council, Bristol Youth Strike 4 Climate and the Avon Wildlife Trust. Together we are creating wilder habitats on College Green.
In Spring 2021 volunteers helped create meadows alongside the Cathedral by planting thousands of wildflowers with over 50 different native species. Later in the year trees and hedging will be added. This new wilder habitat will provide food and shelter for at least 2,000 species attracting many more pollinators.
