We love celebrating the natural world and every day at our nursery, our staff capture images of what is happening at the beck and in the woodlands. We have an archive of thousands of images that over the years show the different seasons and the wildlife that have made Mires Beck their home. Dragonflies are a constant companion walking alongside the beck during the summer and each month we'd like to show the images that tell the story of our natural world as the seasons change. Visit our 12 month image bank. 
With the focus on climate and conservation, we are looking at how our contribution to resolving the issue of climate change through our growing of plants and trees, can help deliver revenue for improving facilities at the nursery, particularly for more profoundly disabled service users. We also recognise that for years our service users have created art and craft using the bounty of materials avaialble within our rural environment. They engage in art as a therapy, often taking the inspiration from their surroundings to help them feel calm, and to stimulate them to see form and recognise colour. We hope to do more work in this area but need to fundraise for more indoor working space. 
We are lucky to have a reach to people working in the field of environmental art, whose creativity helps us to understand and admire what we may otherwise take for granted. Our aim through this reach during the Jubillee year, is to put together an exhibition for Hull to showcase the work of international artists telling the global environment story, and to help raise funds for us to expand our facilities for our service users.

Our October Wildlife 

Mires Beck Nursery plays host to the Great Crested Newt and other newts we see around our large pond and in our adjacent woodland. As a protected species they are now the nursery's symbol of protection, signifying much of our work looking after plants of Yorkshire provenance, growing of Phragmites and trees to protect lowlands, and creating further habitat. Not without with reference of course to the safegauarded environment for vulnerable people in our care. You will see the newt icons on our barnding and our website depicted as our founders Dr's Richard and Irene Tinklin who did so much work for east Yorkshire conservation.  
All projects require fundraising and we are always looking for new sponsors and volunteers to help us realise the future aspirations to maintain the charity and help it to thrive. If you would like to help please contact us.
