After watching the grass being cut numerous times,  Myles Thompson's daughter created a tiny nature reserve in their garden to try and save the wildlife in the grass from the lawn mower.

Myles's daughter's idea, that an individual can save a tiny patch of the earth inspired him so much he made a video of it.  Watch their video 'How to make a forest from a patch of grass' to see what happened and how many little creatures they saved!
