Brochure Text

Learn how to encourage and enjoy more wildlife in the garden, whatever your style and preferences. This course will help you to plan a garden for people and wildlife – one that, importantly, reflects your personal situation and available resources. By introducing the principles of how to garden with wildlife you will discover how to make the most of features by helping them to work together for mutual benefit. Building on this essential foundation, you will discover how to design multi-purpose ‘mini-habitats’ such as small ponds, wildflower meadows, copses and shrubberies. Other ‘extras’ such as bird boxes, log piles and ‘natural’ food growing will also be included. By the end of this course you will be able to avoid common pitfalls and plan for a successful and inspirational wildlife-friendly garden. Dr Angie Polkey has been wildlife gardening on a range of scales for 30 years and, since moving to Ceredigion in 1997, has created her own three and half acre nature reserve and sustainable smallholding.
