Wild About Gardens

Gardens can be wonderful places for wildlife. It really is easy and inexpensive to create a mosaic of wildlife rich areas - from a simple window box to an imaginatively planted vegetable plot.

Thanks to everyone who entered Wild About Gardens 2014. The closing date was 30 June and our volunteer advisors now have the pleasure of visiting a wide variety of wildlife friendly gardens-from a taxi rank to a caravan park!
If you haven't heard from us by the middle of August, please contact maureen.rainey@kentwildlife.org.uk or telephone 01622 662012.

Awards ceremonies will be held across the county in November.
If you didn't enter this year and are already thinking of how you can make your garden more wildlife friendly in 2015 why not come along to one of our autumn workshops? (See the download below)

We are keen to hear from gardeners and/or enthusiasts who may be interested in training to become a volunteer advisor. For details contact Maureen Rainey on 01622 662012 or maureen.rainey@kentwildlife.org.uk.

There are a range of advise sheets available, to see them click here.

There are some Wildlife Gardening Workshops being organised throughout the year, to see details, visit our What's on page and select event type of Wildlife Gardening.
