We’re working with Avon Wildlife Trust and the Walcot Traders Association to co-design a project which aims to create a wildlife corridor along Walcot Street in Bath. This project is based on Avon Wildlife Trust’s successful ‘My Wild City’ project in Bristol.
The project will involve looking at existing green spaces and scrub land along the street and improving their wildlife value by planting bee friendly flowering plants. The placing of growing boxes on the street and on window ledges is also a possibility.
Wild Walcot is a community based project and is being designed and run in conjunction with residents and businesses on Walcot Street.

We ran a very successful co-design evening at The Bell on Walcot on Tuesday 6th June. Residents, local businesses people and representatives from community groups attended and contributed ideas and offers of help.
