To reach those not involved in allotments or community gardens but who may have their own garden or local greenspace, we plan to hold 12 Pop-up Wildlife Gardening Workshops. The workshops will be hosted at busy locations across the Forth Valley such as shopping centres, town centres, large gardening outlets, festivals and other top local attractions.
These workshops are similar in nature to our Wildlife Gardening Workshops but are great for those dropping by who can take away an activity or two to help wildlife in their garden or activities on guerilla gardening at their local green space. Of course if you’ve got more time you can learn all the fundamentals of wildlife gardening to make sure you can Come Forth for Wildlife in your garden!
Pop-up Wildlife Gardening Workshops have begun under the Come Forth for Wildlife project! Our first two workshops were held in October 2020 at the Stirling Farmers Market and the Forge Market, and the third was at Blair Drummond Safari Park in Novemeber 2020. Each event was a lot of fun, with the local community learning lots of tips on creating mini-ponds, pond seed bombs, hibernacula and more. Keep an eye out for future events, check the events page for details!
