HTA supports Natural Buzz campaign

Communities across Wales are set to benefit from Natural Buzz; a pollinator initiative launched last week run by Keep Wales Tidy in partnership with the HTA and Green Space Wales.

Funded by the Welsh Government?s Nature Fund, the initiative aims to deliver action on the ground to benefit biodiversity and deliver community benefits to the surrounding areas, while raising awareness of the importance of pollinators for the local environment.

As part of the campaign, and to help people make the most of their green spaces and transform local unused areas, communities can have their very own ?Wild Weekend? where ?55,000 worth of National Garden Gift Vouchers (NGGV) will be up for grabs for the people of Wales. Community groups, schools, charitable organisations and local authorities in Wales can apply for up to ?500 of NGGV, thanks to Natural Buzz to help create wild-flower havens to help create new habitat and food sources for pollinators in Wales.

Tony Stacey, NGGV Marketing Manager ?I am delighted that the HTA and National Garden Gift Vouchers are playing a part in the Natural Buzz campaign. It will undoubtedly boost footfall to independent garden centres in Wales, who are ideally placed to advise and educate the public about highly effective pollinator plants?.

Applications open at the end of November, with the first deadline for completed applications on 9 December 2014. Successful applications will be awarded on a monthly basis. Information and full terms and conditions will be available on the Keep Wales Tidy website shortly
