All things Bright and Beautiful - Road Verges - the BLUE campaign. 💙

The BLUE campaign and placement of blue heart markers 💙 How to get involved The idea is if you would like a grass verge left to grow as a wildflower meadow to encourage more pollinating insects you can put blue heart markers on each end so the Council knows not to mow it. 🦋 The Blue campaign was conceived in 2014 in response to a report on the State of Nature published last year, which highlighted the dramatic decline in biodiversity and biomass across the uk. It promotes the rewilding o...
