Food and Shelter

This workshop concentrates on providing food and shelter for wildlife in your garden through out the year.  It’s really important to understand the lifecycles of the wildlife in your garden to ensure that not only do you have the food available but you then also provide breed and winter habitat.

Fresh Water -

 Freshwater is important for so many of our wildlife.  We will explore easy ways to provide different sources of water but will concentrate on making micro-ponds.  How to build them and keep them fresh.  We will explore native plants for ponds and bog gardens and once again connect everything into the food chain.  Click here for more details
