We are working with local councils and local charities to create landscapes where wildlife and people can thrive, creating new habitats for wildlife, a cleaner, greener place for us all to enjoy today and tomorrow.
Developing the local environment helps promote local pride. Our gardening achievement mean that we are taking wasteland back, tackling the criminal activity of littering and dog fouling-and antisocial behaviour.
School gardens are a wonderful way to use the schoolyard as a
classroom, reconnect students with the natural world and the true source of their food. It teaches them valuable gardening and agriculture concepts and skills that integrate with several subjects, such as maths, science, art,
health and physical education, and social studies, as well as several educational goals, including personal and social responsibility.
Volunteers at In-Work are involved in tasks such as improving woodlands by planting and clearing, turning derelict wasteland into bee-friendly wildflower meadows, creating ponds and footpaths, building bird and bat boxes, and a whole range of other environmental activities and practical projects, including community gardens.
