Gardening for Wildlife

Over the course of the evening, Iwan Edwards of North Wales Wildlife Trust will show us how we can all be wildlife friendly when gardening.  It will be a mixture of presentations, learning and practice with lots of useful hints and tips thrown in.  You will try your hand at sowing wildflower seeds which you can take home and learn how to monitor changes in your garden.  Refreshments will be available and parking is free nearby. No need to print the ticket – just give your name when you arrive.
