Welcome to Beorn Wilde

Organic Gardening Services

The Organic Gardening Specialists

Beorn Wilde is a small yet passionate business operating within the West Midlands. We are reliable, customer-focused and dedicated to our work. For Beorn Wilde, our priority will always be a fusion of our clients’ needs combined with the needs of our environment.

We think global and we act local

In the past 30 years, 75% of insects have disappeared and we are facing the real risks of food shortages thanks to the knock-on effects of a decrease in pollinators. If the world continues at its current pace for the next 60 years, then 95% of soil life will be dead. Soil health, vitality and diversity is entirely essential for the growth of edible crops and oxygenating plants.

Endemic plant species have lost close to 70% of their natural habitats due to chemical pesticides, invasive plant species and the destabilisation of their optimal living environments. All it takes is for one species to disappear to upset the balance of the ecosystem, yet in only 40 years we have seen a 60% loss in wildlife.

Caring for our environment

Beorn Wilde recognises the threat of climate change and aims to be part of the solution, rather than contributing to the problem. We will achieve this by adopting and promoting garden practices that actively support biodiversity, encourage wildlife, and lessen our collective dependency on chemicals.

At Beorn Wilde, we aim to be reliable, customer-focused and dedicated to providing the highest possible standard of work. Our priority is a fusion of the clients’ needs combined with the needs of our shared environment. As well as a variety of gardening services, we hope to turn website into an ever-expanding resource for information and guidance on everything organic.

Permaculture

“Permaculture is a philosophy of working with, rather than against nature; of protracted and thoughtful observation rather than protracted and thoughtless labour; and of looking at plants and animals in all their functions, rather than treating any area as a single product system.”

Here at Beorn Wilde, we are well aware of the many benefits and solutions that permaculture can provide. It’s something we incorporate into our personal lives and it’s also something that we utilise in our work.

To gain a general overview of  permaculture you can watch this video, or click here to read about it in more detail.

We hope it inspires you just as much as it inspires us!

Community-minded

Mind logo

Mental health support and awareness is an issue very close to my heart. I worked for Mind for over three years leading a horticultural therapy service in Solihull. It was one of the toughest, yet most rewarding periods of my life. I learned first hand just how beneficial nature and a sense of community can be for us all.

Kingstanding Food Community logo

Kingstanding Food Community is another charity that I have previously worked with. They are based in the heart of Birmingham and they do a fantastic job of supporting people from the local community. The food from the community-run cafe is delicious and there's always something exciting to do down at their community allotments.
