Wild Patch Project

What is the ‘Wild Patch’ project?

‘Any piece of land, of any size, where wildlife can be encouraged to live and thrive.’

The South Yare Wildlife Group, with funding generously provided by the Broads Authority via the Heritage Lottery Fund, has created ‘The Wild Patch’ project to encourage householders and landowners to consider how they might manage their gardens or other spaces nearby to encourage wildlife.

Our gardens, ponds, community and other public spaces could be valuable ‘stepping stones’ to enhance the overall biodiversity in a landscape that is predominantly farmed or developed.

On this website you can see where other people have created their wild patches and there are galleries of their photographs to give you inspiration and fact sheets on specific topics to guide you.

Join us and put your patch on the map!

Whether your ‘patch’ is large or very small, or if you have just a verge, patio or window ledge, together we can create an amazing connecting patchwork of wildlife havens that will enrich our environment and enhance biodiversity.
