Charity Conservation Gardening Workshop


14th June 2015

For anyone who has been wanting to do a biodiversity gardening workshop this is a must.

Anyone who loves gardening for bees, butterflies and people, at John Little’s gorgeous wildflower gardens in Essex on 14th.

John has created the Poppy Estate at Clapton Park Estate in Hackney.

Incredible value with a range of experts – it’ll be a wonderful day.

Definitely come for the moth breakfast and make your own bee hotel.

Proceeds to education charity in Nepal and local woodland charity:

Come and spend the day with us as we share all we have learned over the last 20 years getting wildlife back into urban public space and gardens.

The course is held in 4 acres of wildlife gardens and green roofs at Hilldrop in Essex

Here is just some of the stuff we hope to cover:
* Creating annual and perennial flower meadows
* Using waste materials to make flower rich places
* Green roofs, they are easy and make so much sense. Find out how to build them
* Bees. Get our native solitary bees into your garden, ideas on building bee habitat and nectar rich plants. Don’t let honey bees get all the press
* Got some tree questions, my mate Andy Klecha tree man will be here to help
* Chat veg and design with Jo Baker our cool garden designer
* Ponds and how to build a good one for wildlife
* The amazing Rod Cole will share some thoughts on native plants and all things wild
* I’ll bang on about getting food into public green space
