This is a thread for form content on 'wilding'. I'm intent on not getting hung on specific terms, schools or scenes. It's the spirit of the endeavour that counts, not the name. I'm seeing this thread a resource that can hopefully be helpful if you are interested. The elements are not intended to suggest a panacea, criticism or whine. They are not here to guilt-trip any one. They are not here to "stuff down your throat". If this isn't your thing, that's fine too.
I know lots of forum members are doing loads of these kind of things already and have done for decades - elements, projects, having wholescale wild gardens and running professional services. Please do add in resources that you think might be useful.
We have a bowl pond with plants and logs in, but it's no good for amphibians to spawn in or dragonflies etc, it's only ever had pond skaters and water beetles - which I am happy with!
I have got a plan for some big old rotting logs I've kept though.
Wild your Garden with Joel Ashton lots of vids on his channel and Dave Goulson does some good videos.
If you put Isabella Tree into a Youtube search you'll find several talks.
I don't have a TV so all my watching is Youtube.
Also, if I'm allowed to use such language, a select few Facebook groups. If you just visit the right groups you don't have to put up with the other crap

If a pond is healthy, it looks healthy - the last one I put in was crystal clear without any effort, and had lots of wildlife, I don't want a silt ditch. 😄
