More Garden Offices Articles A school in Greater London has won a grant to turn a disused garden into a new wildlife reserve.
Osidge Primary School in Southgate received £10,000 from the Big Lottery Fund for the project, which aims to revitalise a former nature garden, the Enfield Independent reported.
The installation of garden structures such as log cabins and garden offices could help with the preservation and maintenance of such wildlife reserves. According to the newspaper, the Osidge Primary School project is part of a wider drive to support environmental projects across the south-east of England.
Sanjay Dighe, chairman of the England Committee of the Big Lottery Fund, said: "Our Community Wildlife programme is all about supporting projects that get people of all ages and backgrounds working together to improve and protect their local wildlife.
"The funding announced today will enable people across the south of England to enjoy the natural environment and help conserve local habitats and threatened wildlife for future generations."
