Wilding Weekend

I started wilding at my home in West Dorset in 2020 during lock-down. It has been a revelation. We removed fences, dug ponds, made mounds, planted trees and created a wild-flower meadow. It didn’t take long before the wildlife noticed the difference. We have barn owls, bats, many bee species, birds of prey and many other things not beginning with ‘B’! You’ll see from the posts below that there are many schools of thought about what is wilding and what we should be doing. I’ve learnt a lot from the wonderful Isabella Tree, whom I was lucky enough to interview in 2023.
