Hands on for Habitat Heroes
Hands on for Habitat Heroes is a partnership between the Federation of City Farms and Community Gardens, the North Region of the Co-operative Membership and host farms and gardens. Inspired by the Habitat Heroes programme on Co-operative Farms, it has provided an opportunity for Co-operative members and the wider community to get involved.
The aim has been to work together to improve habitats for protected and endangered species.
