The past 20 months have shown us how important our local environment is. Whether it’s our window boxes and front gardens or streets and local parks, we have all relied on our green spaces to give us space and a breath of fresh air.
That’s why Rotary supported the #BillionSeedChallenge to plant wildflowers to brighten up our parks, verges and playgrounds with incredible splashes of colour.
Plantings took place throughout October, culminating on 30th October, the day before COP26, an international climate conference in Glasgow.
This presented our chance chance for businesses, charities, faith and community groups to show we are uniting to protect and brighten up our local environment.
Rotary ambassador Steve Brown launched the Challenge on 25th September and, as the Challenge came to it's climax, visited his local Rotary club to take part.
Many Rotary clubs across the country also planted more than 2 million crocus corms, as part of Rotary’s continued End Polio Now campaign.
Planting activities place on and around World Polio Day on 24th October and as well as highlighting Rotary’s vital work to eradicate polio, it allowed people to contribute to the #BillionSeedChallenge as well!
