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 Bid
A Tale of Two Cities is Landlife’s vision, with key partners in the northwest, to deliver a unique cultural landmark wildflower project in England that uses wildflowers in the UK, to turn people’s heads and hearts, and inspire new Grow Wild communities. We will sow bold wild landscapes in both cities, on a grand and local scale and unite people to see, celebrate, and to create their own Grow Wild adventures. We want to ignite a new generation of wild flower enthusiasts.
If we win the Public Vote, A Tale of Two Cities: Liverpool and Manchester will create cultural links between the two historically divided cities. Starting from Everton Park in Liverpool and Hulme and Moss Side in Manchester, we will work together in prominent spaces that become wild flower celebrations, connecting places and telling their stories.
Supported by the Big Lottery Fund and led by Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, Grow Wild inspires communities, friends, neighbours and individuals across the UK to come together to transform local spaces, by sowing, growing and enjoying native wild flowers.
Be A Tale of Two Cities voter and help Liverpool and Manchester win the Grow Wild Public Vote – Inspiring wild flower spaces full of colour and wildlife for everyone to enjoy.
