Landlife works for a better environment by creating new opportunities for wildflowers and wildlife and encouraging people to enjoy them
Landlife founded the National Wildflower
Centre on Merseyside as a millennium project and separate charity in 1999 and
we have our base here. As an established eco-attraction and award winning
centre for our native wildflower heritage, we have worked to inspire people
to take positive action for nature wherever they live. Promoting new
wildflower landscapes, learning, creative conservation and better health and
wellbeing, the National Wildflower Centre welcomes over 30,000 visitors
annually. Over 12 years, we have drawn over 21m of investment to bring nature
and people closer together.
From April 2013, Landlife has merged its National Wildflower
Centre project into the Landlife parent goup. As
part of this, we are re-working our website and marketing information to
reflect the change and are moving and upgrading this Landlife site at the
moment. Please bear with us until this is completed.
GROW WILD ENGLAND FLAGSHIP
A Tale of Two Cities Liverpool and Manchester is the winning Grow Wild England Landmark Project. Grow Wild is creating four high profile flagship sites, one in each UK country, and voted for by the public. A Tale of Two Cities won the public vote in England in November 2014 against very strong and excellent competition. We are so very proud and excited to have won.
Our vision is to deliver a unique cultural landmark project in the northwest of England to:
- redefine wildflower best practice
- turn people’s heads and hearts
- inspire new Grow Wild communities
We will sow bold landscapes in both Liverpool and Manchester on a grand scale – about 10 hectares (equivalent to 20 football pitches!), and into the spaces between where we can. We will unite the people and communities in both cities to experience, celebrate and create Grow Wild adventures. We will ignite a new generation of wildflower lovers.
A Tale of Two Cities has won £120,000 to achieve this. Liverpool and Manchester will be forging new pathways between environment and culture, using music and arts practice, to bring the beauty of wildflowers to people in intriguing and imaginative ways. Our project will run until 2017.
