Framlingham Wildlife Garden was established as part of the ‘Greener Fram’ initiative and attracted support from a number of funders. The land is own by Framlingham College.
The site is about an acre in size and was once used for raising pigs.
In 2012 a competition was held to design a wildlife area in the community garden the winning design was by local resident Judy James work is now underway to create this design.

Wildlife at Framlingham wildlife garden
Gardens are a haven for many species, particularly if the garden is managed sensitively with wildlife in mind. In the spring and summer butterflies and reptiles will use the refuges we have created for them. Amphibians and invertebrates will use rough areas and log piles for hibernation and birds are encouraged by providing nest boxes and a year round food source in the hedgerows and uncut seed heads.
