At Grand Designs Live Birmingham a Wildlife Forest was created to show visitors how and where to create wildlife friendly environments, in whatever outdoor space you have to work with, from a 7-acre plot to a 5sm balcony.
Where are you going to be creating your wildlife friendly environment?
An interactive map of the UK was provided so that visitors can place their finger on the map to show where people are supporting the Green Finger Campaign. Visitors will receive information on the state of nature of your area and the best actions to take. Plus, collect a free packet of Cornflower seeds to sow in your garden, supplied by British Wildflower Meadow Seeds (Habitat Aid Ltd).
The OakMobile created by Talking Birds in partnership with National Trust, was designed to incorporate both well-known Birmingham landmarks and West Midlands National Trust properties. At the event visitors could interact with bushcraft activities and talk to representatives from the National Trust about the work they do as a conservation charity, including conversing the heritage of the UK's historic buildings.
National Trust was offering their membership with a special offer for anyone who signs up whilst they were at Grand Designs Live Birmingham. Any one signing up for an individual, joint or family membership received a free £15 National Trust gift card. Membership starts from as little as £6 a month. This offer applies to gift memberships also; which is great with Christmas just round the corner.
