This project is on hold due to COVID-19. You can still sign up to be part of the campaign and we’ll keep you posted on how we can stay connected to nature and each other while maintaining physical distance. 

Native trees and shrubs keep us cool, make our streets beautiful and provide habitat for wildlife. More nature is an important climate solution, and it's vital for biodiversity. In greener spaces we breathe cleaner air, feel happier and are more connected to one another. 

Before the global Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, people like you were getting together to bring much more nature into our communities by running Nature for Neighbourhoods events.

Communities were planning projects like greening their nature strip together, building frog bogs, or creating local pocket parks for people and wildlife. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, we have postponed all events that bring people physically together to care for nature. 

But although we need to keep physical distance right now, accessing nearby nature for our mental and physical health is more important than ever. 

That's why we're working on exciting new ways to safely connect you with nature and each other online while maintaining physical distance. Stay tuned for updates! 

Because the need to build a huge movement of nature lovers to shift the politics and fix the systems that are destroying life has not gone away – we just need to find other ways to do it.
