Rewilding will be crucial for tackling the twin crises of climate change and biodiversity loss. Most often, we talk about rewilding on a grand scale—on farms and large tracts of land, and in wider bioregions. But rewilding in gardens can be just as important.
There are many reasons why we should rewild on a domestic scale. It’s useful to think small, in addition to taking the broader view, since even small steps taken at home can help improve our environments. Thinking more “wildly” can help us find solutions for the major challenges we face.
