Summary

Finding herself in a new home in Brighton, Kate Bradbury sets about transforming her barren backyard into a beautiful wildlife garden. But while she's doing this Kate's neighbours continue to pave their gardens, the wildlife she tries to save is further threatened and she feels she's fighting an uphill battle.

Is there any point in gardening for wildlife when everyone else is drowning the land in poison and cement? If the dead could return, what would they say about the land we have taken, the ancient routes we have carved up, the wildlife we have lost?

Wonderful listen

I downloaded this audio book on a off chance while searching for my next listen.
I am so glad I did. What a fantastic inspiring story of a garden brought back to life. It was interwoven with a memoir of the author.
Beautifully read by the author Kate Bradbury.
If just one person listening to this builds a garden to encourage wildlife, it will make our planet a better place In which to live.
It made me want to rush out and count the wildlife living in my wildlife garden.
