The biodiverse garden - Masterclass
Join us for this hands-on session in our organic garden to discover how best to attract beneficial wildlife and what you can do to make your garden or growing space as wildlife-friendly as possible. If you’ve ever wondered what wildlife you have living in your garden then this is the session for you, we’ll look at the specific creatures, what they’re doing there, why they might want to come to your garden rather than next door (especially if you're an organic gardener!) and what you can do to discourage the wildlife you don’t want.
- How to identify the creatures in your green space
- How to make your garden more wildlife-friendly
- Choosing plants and growing methods to help different garden creatures
Skill level: Beginners
What you need to bring: Sensible shoes and outdoor wear
Course leader: Sally Cunningham

A keen wildlife recorder, Sally has also assisted with surveys and courses with several Wildlife Trusts.
Our garden tour will demonstrate how to establish and maintain an organic garden and reveal the organic principles we use such as companion planting, crop rotation, soil management, composting, pest and disease management and seasonal activities. There will be plenty of time with the garden team to ask your organic growing questions and time to explore the garden for yourself.
