Pollinator friendly gardening (Online Course)
About the event
Pollinators need more than flowers. To encourage them in our gardens, we must cater for all stages of their lifecycle. This interactive course will explain how - in simple easy to follow steps. Time is included for group discussion
The session will start with a power point presentation followed by a Q & A session. Participant numbers will be restricted to a maximum of 15 to enable time for all participants to take part comfortably.
- Types of pollinators & their lifecycles
- Habitat requirements during each part of life cycle
- Basic principle of pollinator friendly gardening
By the end of the course it is expected that you will:
- Understand which animals are the main pollinators in the UK & their lifecycles
- Understand what these animals need during the various stages of their lifecycle
- Understand how we can cater for these needs in our gardens
