The Bee-Friendly Garden –
Providing for our Native Wild Bees
– and other pollinators
with Karina Dingerkus, ecologist,
& Celia Graebner, organic gardener
Learn about the living and feeding habits of our wild bees and hoverflies, why they are under threat, and how to protect them with suitable habitat, shelter, accommodation and food.
The afternoon session will start you off on designing your own garden, woodland or hedgerow as a haven for native pollinators, introducing you to flowers and shrubs that can provide year-round foraging for native pollinators.
Weather permitting, a pollinator observation walk around the Mount Falcon grounds will be included.
(If pollinators are not flying we will use National Biodversity Centre resources to learn to identify them.)
