Come along and explore the many tiny gardeners that work for free in our gardens. The morning will be split into two parts;
1. An active exploration of the diverse animals that carry out some of our gardens essential services (pollination, decomposition and pest control). We will look at their roles, life cycles and how we can ‘invite’ them into our gardens by designing appropriate gardening systems.
2. We will make some specific animal shelters (mason bee, potters wasp, native bee, earwig, bumble bee…).The morning will be spent outside in my garden. Please bring a sunhat, secateurs if you have them, a banana box to take home your ‘homes’, some lunch to share and be prepared to get your hands dirty.
