Where the Wild Things Are: gardening for nature in Quaker spaces

The UK is one of the most nature-depleted places on Earth, in the face of this our gardens provide a vital sanctuary. This presentation by Caroline Chandler considers how we can use our gardens to support nature and provide a refuge for different members of our community. Drawing on the experiences of three Quaker meeting houses in London, this presentation considers the different roles of Quaker gardens: as sanctuary and community gathering spaces, places of remembrance, working gardens providing livelihoods and sustenance, and vital lifelines for nature and biodiversity.
