Nature conservation for everyone
... and the creation of a species-rich patch of meadow flowers or an insect hotel. One of the calls for this year is to recognise and support the biodiversity that surrounds us. You can start in a variety of ways, such as by setting up a small box of domestic flowers or herbs on your balcony, building an insect hotel, or leaving a few patches of around the house unmowed to allow the meadow flowers to bloom and insects to pollinate them. For those interested we will send a seed package of meadow flowers, which can be used to set up a species-rich patch of meadow flowers – to create something pretty to look at, places to eat for pollinators, and a place where domestic plants can grow.
Reducing food waste
... and the construction of a compost bin. As part of Green Tiger
initiative, we will be focusing on reducing food waste. An important skill is
knowing how to give new life to our daily bio-waste – whether it be from the kitchen
or the garden. Composting is a natural process in which bacteria, micro-organisms,
fungi and earthworms turn waste into valuable nutrient-rich soil. Tips for
building a compost bin and getting started with composting are available on the
Let’s Do It website.
Caring about each other
...also known as safe conduct and mental vitamins. As the COVID-19 pandemic
that has lasted for more than a year, this year we will also focus on safety
and security, as well as on mental health. We do this in two ways: first, by
providing support to ensure that the collective action takes place in
compliance with the 2+2 rule and as safely as possible even within the small
family circle. In addition, we gather advice from experts on the Let’s Do It
website in order to better cope in a situation where there has been a longer forced
pause in the community’s collaboration.
