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. About Grow Wild – Grow Wild is the UK’s biggest-ever wild flower campaign, bringing people together to transform local spaces with native, pollinator-friendly wild flowers and plants. Supported by the Big Lottery Fund, Grow Wild is the national outreach initiative of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. Through us millions of people are doing something positive where they live; connecting with wild flowers, plants and places around them, taking notice of nature, getting active, learning new things and sharing their knowledge and enthusiasm. We believe that this simple act of creativity can turn spaces into beautiful, inspiring and colourful wildlife havens; encouraging people to care for and delight in the nature around them.
