At my workplace
Containers could be your friend here, although they need to be quite large for wildflowers to grow. You will also want to get some helpers on board - while many colleagues will thank you for creating a wild space to enjoy, not everyone will want to help keep it going.
We've put together some ideas on how to get your project off the ground...
Getting people involved
One of the best ways to make people feel welcome is to give them something to do. We've listed 10 different roles people could do to help your wildflower project.
Food and drink!
People love to be fed. It doesn't have to be fancy: orange squash and biscuits go down a treat. Hot drinks for colder days are always welcome. And anyone that doesn't want to get their hands dirty might prefer taking on the role of chief cook and bottle washer.
Workplaces love a good quiz - a bit of friendly competition, or just something to click through on your lunchbreak. The link above goes to a quiz we created, but you could do one based on our A-Z of growing words, or the Wildflower Gallery, to garner some interest among your colleagues.
Activities & downloads
Here's some things you can do or print out...
