Every June The Wildlife Trust run their #30dayswild challenge, asking folks to do one wild thing a day. 2021 saw more than 760,000 people going wild… including the wonderful team here at Fillville.

Having been cooped-up way too long, we figured this was a bona fide excuse to get outside & enjoy more time in the wild. Here’s a few of the crew doing their thing…

First up, here’s Celia between the gunwales, keeping well her favourite vegetables & wild flowers aboard her narrow boat… and then high up in the Brecon Beacons on a hike with George.

Here’s Emilija & Mikey in the garden in early June… planting out Greek basil, mint and parsley seeds at golden hour.

Adam out on the trail with grazing squad & his new favourite fleecy friend, Flora the Alpaca.

Next up is Kerry’s little guy Daniel, a budding birdwatcher working hard on his backyard bird feed set-up!


After a long week of isolation in the ping-pen Lucy couldn’t wait to get out for a run & wrap her arms around a tree (safely).


Jayne built a log pile bug-hotel ready for check-ins and planted up a whole load of wild flowers to get the bees buzzing.


Sharron went barefoot, saved a sad bee with a lovin’ spoonful of sugar water and built a water bath for insects & birds.

Simple random acts of wildness help us realise that we need nature and it needs us.

The UK’s natural world is in steady decline. The Wildlife Trust is helping tackle the climate and ecological emergency, whilst making nature part of life for everyone – creating a wilder future for wildlife and people.

More than 850,000 members and 35,000 volunteers work together with their Wildlife Trust to make their local area wilder and make nature part of life, for everyone.

Every Wildlife Trust is an independent charity.
