My ARK Garden
I am lucky enough to have an acre of garden and an acre field attached. Last year I left about a quarter of my garden to become more natural. I stopped cutting it back & I stopped controlling it, apart from creating a pathway through it.
I have been guiding remote nature/forest therapy walks from my garden since January.
My overall aim, in addition to creating an ARK garden, is to establish a Nature Therapy Centre at my home, to conduct Nature Therapy guided walks here, as well as nature/well-being related activities and training courses. Below is my hand-drawn plan of my ARK Garden.
What is an ARK?
uAn Ark is a restored, native ecosystem, a local, small, medium or large rewilding project. It’s a thriving patch of native plants and creatures that have been allowed and supported to re-establish in the earths intelligent, successional process of natural restoration. Over time this becomes a pantry and a habitat for our pollinators and wild creatures who are in desperate need of support.
