Community Space

A wide variety of community spaces are appropriate as Wild Spaces, including allotments, amenity spaces, community gardens, public parks and churchyards. These spaces can not only provide valuable habitat for butterflies and moths to feed, breed and shelter, but also peaceful locations for people to connect to nature, join community events and feel good. We encourage community spaces (and all Wild Spaces) to peat and pesticide free.
