Bird garden unveiled
16:24 10 February 2014
A haven for birds and other wildlife has been unveiled at Honiton library.
The new bird garden has been made possible thanks to the hard work of volunteers from Transition Town Honiton.
They were joined by Steven Henry from the RSPB for the official launch of the garden.
Mr Henry said: “This project is exactly the kind of thing we’d love to see happen across the country. Transition Town Honiton had the vision to do this and worked hard to see it through. It is really inspiring to see what can be done when people work together.
“Of course, it really brightens up the area but it is also part of something much bigger. Gardens like this and gardens that people have at home, when put together, create the biggest nature reserve in the country, so even a little help will go a long way to giving nature a home.
“We hope the garden is enjoyed by all the visitors to Honiton Library and that it inspires others to give nature a home where they live.”
Transition Town Honiton wanted to improve the view for library users and provide a nature-friendly environment for the local bird population.
This is just one of the projects that has been run by Transition Town Honiton.
