Growing Wild Flowers across our area
To promote the health and well being effects of naturally beautiful wild flower areas, particularly during a period where local authorities are cutting funding, community art & craft groups will be enhancing the area’s
What we’re doing
Spreading the grow wild theme across our locality, by utilising the skills and imagination of our various community groups, including our Men’s shed building planters to add wild flowers to areas of our High street
How to get involved
Please come and visit us for a chat at The Old Library in Prestatyn, join us on a outdoor work party, or join one of our community groups that will be featuring lots of wild flower themed activities during 2016
Who can enjoy our site
Everybody in our locality will see wild flowers that are not normally seen in towns. From the seaside to the hillside and alongside a national trail we will be painting a picture with the natural colours of nature.
We have been commissioned by Artisans Collective to manufacture a number of planters for use across Prestatyn that will be planted with a mixture of flowers.

In the UK we’re lucky to have some amazing wildflowers, but they’re in danger: we have lost 98% of wildflower meadows since the 1930s.
This not only means less colour in our lives but it’s impacting on populations of butterflies, bees, pollinating bugs and birds.
We believe that the simple act of sowing UK native wildflowers can make a difference – and that it can bring neighbourhoods together, connect people to nature and boost our wellbeing.
