Wild or not: which do you prefer?
Wild gardens in our steel, glass and brick jungles offer a softer view. Placed along facades where one would generally never see a garden, because of lack of interest, wild gardens would help create a greener and healthier urban environment. Not only for us but also for bees and other pollinators.
Which of the two do you prefer?
We need wild gardens along buildings like these because of…
climate change causing higher temperatures, serious downpours and flooding.
Buildings without wild gardens DO NOT help in flood mitigation.
Although an abundance of rain occasionally brings joy, too much, too fast, too long and we’re in trouble!
So, what’s it going to be?
Buildings with wild gardens do help with flood mitigation!
Do you want this or that?
Or would you rather walk ankle deep in the rain? Allowing wild plants to grow will help in making a huge difference.
With a little luck, burning tenacity and bolder policies we can achieve wild gardens in the places where
they are needed most in our steel, glass and brick jungles.
