Landlife works for a better environment by creating new opportunities for wildflowers and wildlife and encouraging people to enjoy them

Children visiting the National Wildflower Centre

Landlife founded the National Wildflower Centre on Merseyside as a millennium project and separate charity in 1999 and we have our base here. As an established eco-attraction and award winning centre for our native wildflower heritage, we have worked to inspire people to take positive action for nature wherever they live. Promoting new wildflower landscapes, learning, creative conservation and better health and wellbeing, the National Wildflower Centre welcomes over 30,000 visitors annually. Over 12 years, we have drawn over 21m of investment to bring nature and people closer together.

Landlife has continued to work regionally and nationally on new projects, pioneering soil inversion and recyled wastes for wildflowers, informing policy and new directions, shaping urban nature and environmental justice work. Landlife also runs its trading company Landlife Wildflowers, farming wildflowers for seed and offering consultancy advice all over the UK.

From April 2013, Landlife has merged its National Wildflower Centre project into the Landlife parent goup. As part of this, we are re-working our website and marketing information to reflect the change and are moving and upgrading this Landlife site at the moment. Please bear with us until this is completed.
In the meantime, please visit www.nwc.org.uk for current information on Landlife.

GROW WILD ENGLAND FLAGSHIP Bid

A Tale of Two Cities is Landlife’s vision, with key partners in the northwest,  to deliver a unique cultural landmark wildflower project in England that uses wildflowers in the UK, to turn people’s heads and hearts, and inspire new Grow Wild communities. We will sow bold wild landscapes in both cities, on a grand and local scale and unite people to see, celebrate, and to create their own Grow Wild adventures. We want to ignite a new generation of wild flower enthusiasts.

If we win the Public Vote, A Tale of Two Cities: Liverpool and Manchester will create cultural links between the two historically divided cities. Starting from Everton Park in Liverpool and Hulme and Moss Side in Manchester, we will work together in prominent spaces that become wild flower celebrations, connecting places and telling their stories.

Supported by the Big Lottery Fund and led by Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, Grow Wild inspires communities, friends, neighbours and individuals across the UK to come together to transform local spaces, by sowing, growing and enjoying native wild flowers.

Be A Tale of Two Cities voter and help Liverpool and Manchester win the Grow Wild Public Vote – Inspiring wild flower spaces full of colour and wildlife for everyone to enjoy.
