Would you like to have birds serenading you while you relax in your garden? Do you think it would be lovely to see more butterflies but you don’t know what kinds of plants will attract them? And how on earth do you keep the slugs away from your lettuces? If you would like to find out how you can transform your garden into a wildlife haven, book your place on Stroud Valleys Project’s wildlife gardening workshops.

 You can get your hands dirty, try out hedgeplanting, pond-dipping, learn about insects, birds and bats, make a squelchy bog garden and create a hedgehog box as well as get advice on how to transform the smallest of urban gardens into a great home for wildlife. If you want easy, practical tips that won’t cost the earth, come and get mucky!

The first session will take place on Saturday 10th April, 10am-1pm at Summer Crescent field in Stroud. You will learn all there is to know about hedges: the types of trees to choose, how to plant the saplings and what sort of creatures to expect calling to visit your new habitat. Please bring a spade if you have one.

Free event, donations appreciated.

Meeting place : Summer Crescent field (off Summer Street, Stroud). Accessible via a short footpath on Summer Crescent between house numbers 38 and 40.
