Build a Mini Meadow… Anywhere!

Helping nature take root in cities can often require creativity, dedication, and planning — but when done well, these small patches of greenery provide a necessary patchwork of native plantlife for pollinators that are most in need of our support!

And you’re not alone! Take a look at these amazing resources to build your own meadows, support community science efforts, and spread the word about rebuilding nature in every corner of our planet.

Design Your Own Mini Meadow

Inspired to build a meadow around your own home? Even without much outdoor space, native patches of meadow can begin in just a tiny container, planter, or flowerpot! These resources at Homegrown National Park are the perfect place to start making your new container garden.

Help Support Wildlife Corridors

Much like the pollinator “bee-lines” made possible by vertical meadows, wildlife corridors are at the center of many conservation campaigns — and now you can get involved in their protection! With the citizen science project Lewa, anyone can swipe through wildlife photos, help identify animals, and contribute to the tracking of wildlife corridors around the world.

Get involved with Lewa now at SciStarter.

And Don't Forget to Spread the Word!

Do you want to spread the word about building your own meadows or helping scientists with wildlife corridors? Supporting the re-greening of corridors — and especially those within our cities — is a community effort that we can’t do alone. Share the links to our calls-to-action, amplify our stories on Instagram, or encourage your community to watch our story and learn about London’s new vertical meadows today.
