Münsterland gardens in climate change

Springtime is garden time. And where better to enjoy the Münsterland sun than in your own garden, on the balcony or terrace? And best of all, of course, surrounded by flowers, shrubs and other plants. But the consequences of climate change are also making themselves felt here. More and more species are disappearing; the death rate of bees in Germany alone has been over 20 percent in some cases in recent years.

But the people of Münsterland do not have to stand idly by. Everyone can do something against the loss of biodiversity and the consequences of climate change. What can you do? Find out here!

More about species conservation and climate impacts

With near-natural gardens, we have the opportunity to preserve species in the region. On the other hand, we also have the chance to adapt to climate change. A near-natural garden can be designed individually according to one's own taste. The only important thing is to focus primarily on native plants and to create various habitats for wild animals. For example, you can create wildflower meadows, nesting areas, wild shrub hedges, wet and dry biotopes, insect hotels or even a garden pond.
