Gardening for Biodiversity

Create a Haven for Wildlife

New guide shows how to look after wildlife in your garden

Gardening for Biodiversity is a new free booklet from the Local Authority Heritage Officer Network to help everyone to help wildlife in their gardens. The brainchild of Juanita Browne, the booklet was produced by Local Authority Heritage Officers across Ireland, with help from the National Parks and Wildlife Service and the Heritage Council.

Author Juantia Browne has some really practical advice on turning your garden into a haven for wildlife. The guide outlines actions that can be taken to improve gardens for birds, bees, butterflies, bats and more with all kinds of projects suitable for everyone. From just leaving a corner of your garden to nature to building a bird bath, there are clear instructions and step-by-step drawings by illustrator Barry Reynolds.

Gardening for Biodiversity is funded by the Department for Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht as part of an initiative to encourage projects under the National Biodiversity Action Plan
