- Start noticing & recording any wildlife in your garden & street areas
...and begin a few easy wildlife projects in your gardens and balconies

May, June, July, August & September
- Picking your free cut-flowers and eating your lovely fruit & veg!
- Start recording the increasing wildlife around us, and especially in your gardens & balconies
- We will start creating our first scientific "Jericho Rewilding Map" and analytical report to share between us on how we're getting on!
August & September
- We begin learning how to start collecting free seeds from your plants to reduce the need to buy more seeds for next year! By next Spring, we'll be almost zero-cost on fruit & veg!!
September & October
- we get jamming & pickling & preserving (so start saving your recycled glass jars and bottles with strong sealed lids - you'll need these to store your incredible winter preserves!)
December & January
- we start forward-planning the new Spring season of sharing yet more seeds & plants for our grow-our-own food produce!
- the Rewild Jericho Committee will also start organising with the Council to improve our planting options, sources of compost and free upcycled pots & planters...and much much more!
