The biodiverse garden - Masterclass

Ryton Organic Gardens
Saturday, 24 July 2021 -
10:00am to 1:00pm

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. 

Topics covered

  • 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
Sally Cunningham has worked with Garden Organic for over 20 years and has always had an interest in all sorts of creatures (with a particular passion for invertebrates) for as long as she can remember. A keen wildlife recorder, Sally has also assisted with surveys and courses with several Wildlife Trusts.

Garden tour
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.
