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 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 third block is now available to book onto and will run from July- Sep 2021. If you enjoy these 3 sessions you may want to join us for the remainder of the year. Our final seaso al block will be advertised later in the year.

The details for the third seasonal block are:

Gardens at night

Wednesday 14th July 2021 6:30pm- 8pm

Focusing on bats, in this session we will learn about the amazing biology of bats, and explore how your urban or rural garden can best support these incredible mammals, as well as touching on other nocturnal visitors.

Connectivity

Wednesday 11th August 2021 6:30-8pm

In this session we’ll look at our gardens as part of a wider network of natural havens. We’ll discuss how to improve wildlife corridors through your neighbourhood, and what your local wildlife needs most from your garden!

Gardens in Autumn

Wednesday 8th September 2021 6:30- 8pm

This is the time of year to think about providing food and shelter for wildlife as the days grow colder. This session will cover wildlife friendly garden management, as well as ideas to support wildlife over winter, from stumperies to hibernaculums.

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.
