The Nurture X Keele University Art Competition 

Throughout history, the outdoors has offered a great escape during tough times. As we entered our third national lockdown, the Nurture project teamed up with Keele University to encourage students to create with nature in mind. 

Current projects 

The Woodmeadow Walk is our first place of happiness with the aim of creating habitats for wildlife like bees, butterflies and hedgehogs, improving biodiversity on campus, and becoming a happy place for the local Keele community to enjoy. 
Members of our local community came together to sow wildflower seeds and plant carefully selected wild orchard trees that will provide fruit for wildlife and to be picked by future generations. 
We have been helping the Alsager Urban Wildlife Initiative to survey the Mere in Alsager and we have started working on the next stages of the project. 

Who is involved? 

Ellie-kay Dawe understand first-hand the benefits of outdoor spaces in creating and maintaining happiness. She hopes to help develop a shared understanding of the importance of the natural environment. 

What's next? 

We will now be looking for the next place of happiness where we can benefit the local community and wildlife, while prioritising the natural environment in order to improve ecosystem services. Please email if you have land, or an area, no matter the size or scale, that you would like to turn into a place of happiness.
