In town, I create reservoirs of biodiversity everywhere!Threatened by urbanization and intensive agriculture, many varieties of insects risk disappearing, with very worrying consequences. To offer them shelters, all you need is a simple planter on a window sill or a terrace. So treat yourself and plant wherever you can: on the balcony, in the courtyard of the building, in the courtyard of your children's school… you can even sow seeds in the street! All of these initiatives end up creating an ecological network that will really make a difference.
Even a very small area can accommodate very many varieties of plants.
I take care of the bees
Bees are threatened by a collapse syndrome, it is urgent to protect them.
I replace chemicals with natural treatments
By attracting them, the nasturtiums protect the rest of the garden from aphids.
I stop mowing and pulling the "weeds"
At the foot of an old wall, unwanted grasses provide shelter for many varieties.
I install nest boxes and insect sheltersEven if you are not a big fan of small animals, know that they are your best allies to fight against pests and fertilize flowers. In addition, they are absolutely not likely to disturb you, you will hardly see them. So pamper them by installing insect hotels or by leaving part of your corner of greenery. Also install pretty nest boxes to encourage birds to come and nest in your home.
These insect hotels do not take up space and provide a decorative touch to any balcony.
In the countryside, I create a water point in my gardenIn a garden, the presence of water has many benefits and brings a very appreciable feeling of serenity. But above all, the ponds and other water points attract dragonflies and a whole series of living beings that are currently in decline due to intensive urbanization. What if you adopted a colony of frogs?
Watch the dragonfly dance while protecting biodiversity, long live the water in the garden!
I create "super-reservoirs" of biodiversityIn town as in the countryside, you can continue your efforts by creating areas where biodiversity will quickly concentrate to the maximum. In urban areas, opt for green walls, green roofs or vegetable gardens on the terrace. In a natural environment, plant hedges, which host a very varied flora and fauna, and sow flower meadows, as beautiful as ecological.
Beautiful and ecological, the flowering meadows have it all!
I favor rare and old varietiesTo preserve the wonderful diversity of nature, you also have to know how to admire and enjoy it. Adopt rare species, grow unusual vegetables, plant exceptional trees and don't hesitate to share your crops, cuttings and seeds with your neighbors.
Grow old vegetables like pastries.
