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!
We have enjoyed delivering online, virtual workshops in 2020 and the start of 2021 but are excited now to get back and meet allotment holders and groups in person again! If you are interested in a free workshop contact email@example.com for more information or to set a date.
We have recently run Wildlife Gardening Workshops with the Young Carers Project in Falkirk and Clackmannanshire and Bridge of Allan Cubs in their outdoor space. Attendees learnt about wildlife gardening, created toad abodes, improved a pond and undertook surveys of their space to see what wildlife can be found.
