Wildlearning - Gardening for Wildlife
21 April 2018, 11:00 - 15:00 (Add to calendar)
In the comfortable surroundings of Suffolk Wildlife Trust's headquarters, Brooke House in Ashbocking, you will discover how to create the perfect garden for attracting and supporting wildlife.
Leonie has many years of experience in improving habitat for wildlife and implementing successful conservation projects throughout the county. She will guide you on how to factor in wildlife when planning for your garden, how with small adjustments you can make a significant difference to many different species. The course will cover planting to attract butterflies and pollinators and to provide shelter for many precious species; and how to incorporate simple yet valuable features into your garden such as small ponds, overgrown areas and natural hedgehog or insect homes.
Many important species are under threat in the county and if all of us do a little bit for wildlife, even in just small patch of our garden, we can make a huge difference. This course will provide you with the practical knowledge you need to get started.
During the day, you will stroll through the grounds of Brooke House, and Leonie will point out where many aspects of the course have been implemented to great effect.
Please bring a notebook & pen, and a camera. You will need a packed lunch.
Tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided and are included in the cost.
