The Village of Solihull
With thanks to a grant from Virgin Media O2 Together Fund, The Village of Solihull shares a gift with the community - a tool to bring families together and encourage connectedness within ourselves, between each other and with our environment.
We hope to bring the community together in protecting our environment, noticing the wonder all around us and feeling grounded and in tune with the world.
Our Rewilding Activities packs have been distributed to 300 families in the Solihull area. Inside it's pages you can find family-friendly activities, challenges and tips for getting to know the local area, having fun and learning.

The Garden of Solihull FACTS
Gardening engages all sorts of senses and helps children to develop and recognise them without even realising
Over 90% of Solihull residents live in an urban area, many with no access to their own gardens
The community of North Solihull live on the new HS2 train line and conserving the environment and improvising green spaces is very important here
People living in the most deprived neighbourhoods in Solihull are more exposed to environmental conditions which negatively affect health
There is increasing evidence that exposure to plants and green space, and particularly to gardening, is beneficial to mental and physical health
Aerobic activities such as digging, raking or mowing the lawn get the heart pumping and can burn as many calories or more as going to the gym
