Letting nature back in celebrates the creatures and plants that inhabit and enrich suburban spaces. It highlights people and practical activities that let nature into our suburbs, gardens and households. It features images taken in my own suburban garden reflecting that there is still life in suburban spaces. Letting nature in can shift our priorities with an emphasis on letting go rather than reigning in. Letting nature in enriches us. Let’s celebrate!

About me: I live and work in a suburban space in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands in South Africa. Mostly indigenous plants shelter and feed the wild creatures and birds that live here too. In parallel I have a small kitchen garden.
