Come Forth for Wildlife’s Wildlife Gardening Workshops will be heading to deliver a total of 60 sessions across Falkirk, Clackmannanshire and Stirling offering guidance, advice and on the ground work to make gardens more wildlife friendly.
Therapeutic gardens will be visited over a course of regular sessions to engage with groups with physical / learning difficulties and teaching these groups all about amphibians, reptiles and wildlife friendly gardening with an emphasis on creating wildlife friendly features in their own garden setting.
Community gardens and allotments will be part of a workshop introducing the principles of wildlife gardening through group activities, talks and a tour of the allotment/community garden. All gardens will also be involved in surveying for amphibians or reptiles to see what species already use their spaces!
With social distancing in place our workshops have been postponed over spring / summer – however we are looking towards creating dates for Wildlife Gardening Workshops at the end of summer into autumn / winter of 2020 at allotments and community gardens – do contact email@example.com if you are interested in setting a date!
We visited Kilmadock Community Allotments in Kilmadock, Stirling to share wildlife gardening skills with the group in 2019 and created 2 mini-ponds to compliment the lined pond the group had recently created in the allotments. We were also lucky enough to spot a couple of toads and a frog near the pond!
