Afternoon Workshops How do I make my garden grow? An informal, ‘in the round’ discussion. It doesn’t matter how big or small your space is, it can become a ‘pollinator pit-stop’ really easily! We will have gardening experts and people with practical experience in creating ‘bee homes’ of various kinds to chat with. Come and find out what options there are to make your space more pollinator friendly with an opportunity to ask questions and discuss the pros and cons of various different methods. What’s the Buzz? An introduction to simple ways you can investigate your patch and start to identify the different types of habitat you have and the different creatures that are using it. We will introduce some of the practical guides and materials out there to help you, with opportunities to ask questions and get help from other enthusiasts.
