We spent the day yesterday starting our 'upwilding' project, making changes to improve our 5 acre site to attract more wildlife. First up was our Cupsmith wildlife hotel and sanctuary, which we built using old pallets (all our coffee is delivered on pallets, so it's great to reuse them), old bricks, rotten wood and corrugated cardboard.
We're really pleased with it and everyone loved making it! If we can all make a BIT of a difference in our gardens, we can all make a HUGE difference to wildlife across the country.
If you live locally and fancy building a wildlife hotel in your garden, do get in touch as we have lots more pallets and we'd be so happy to donate them to you. The more wildlife hotels we can build the better!
It was a real family affair and brilliant to get everyone outside and help our British wildlife.
More soon about the next part of our upwilding project.

We head into the fields next door to see whether our seedballs have beckoned new visitors to the Cupsmith wildlife hotel and sanctuary and find a lively meadow in bloom with wild flowers, tall grasses, and bustling with butterflies.

From today, every packet of Cupsmith coffee, tea or hot chocolate you buy will support the brilliant work of Music as Therapy International. We caught up with the charity's Founder and Director, Alexia Quin, over a cup of tea to find out more about what they do and how we can help.
