About the event

If you want inspiration and advice on how to welcome more wildlife to your garden, this is the course for you!  Join us online, every 2nd Wednesday of the month, for Wildlife Gardening Club. Each month we will focus on a different topic: such as building ponds, planting for pollinators and how to grow vegetables in a wildlife friendly way. 

Each month we will be joined by an expert guest from Avon Wildlife Trust (including from our wildlife gardening hub "Grow Wilder"), who will share their knowledge and top tips. You will also have the opportunity to ask for advice on what is best for your own garden.

Wildlife Gardening Club is open to anyone and we welcome people who have only recently discovered their love of nature or gardening. Together we will create a supportive community, where we share our successes and challenges every month, so that we can all learn together. For this reason we are running these sessions in seasonal blocks. The second block is now available to book onto and will run from April- June 2021. If you enjoy these 3 sessions you may want to join us for the remainder of the year. Scroll down to see the schedule for the year.

The details for the second seasonal block are:

Lawns, wildflowers and pollinators

Wednesday 14th April 2021 6:30pm- 8pm

Is your lawn a bit ‘yawn’? In this session we’ll share practical tips on making your lawns, borders and containers havens for pollinators. We’ll discuss what wildflowers are more suitable for different spaces, and share tips on lawn management.

Encouraging bees, butterflies and moths

Wednesday 12th May 2021 6:30-8pm

This session will focus on our vital pollinators. We’ll discuss why we can’t live without them, why they are under threat, and how your garden, patio or balcony can help. We will also give tips on how to identify different types of pollinators.

Wildlife friendly food growing- management

Wednesday 9th June 2021 6:30- 8pm

This session will focus on how to manage vegetable and fruit growing over summer, to get the best results possible whilst respecting the environment. We’ll also discuss nature-friendly pest control: including (of course) slugs and snails!

Frequently asked questions

If I can't make a session can I carry my place over to a future month?
No, you will not be able to transfer onto a later month. Please be sure you can attend the 3 dates you are booking for before you buy the seasonal block.

Can I just purchase 1 session?
No, we would like to make progress together by sharing our experiences based on what we have learned, so we have specifically chosen to run this event as a monthly club.

Can I buy this as a gift?
Yes! We think it will make a wonderful gift. Just let us know by emailing learning@avonwildlifetrust.org.uk when you make your purchase and we will ensure that we email the gift recipient with the welcome details instead of you.
