Forthcoming events

Want to learn more about our approach to wildlife friendly gardening? Our volunteers are available in the gardens to answer questions and offer practical advice on most Friday mornings. Or why not take a butterfly walk, learn to weave a hedgerow basket, help to identify wildlife in the garden or learn about herbal medicine? We run a varied programme of events (many of them free) throughout the year.
