Plants, The Planet and Us

Join course leader Robbie Blackhall-Miles to gain some insights into the lives of plants and why our own existence on this planet depends on them. Learn why some plants produce such vibrant flowers and why we need to look after them. Get hands-on with some practical activities, including how to save seeds, so you can be a part of maintaining a flower filled planet.  Refreshments will be provided. Free parking is available behind the venue is available and Prestatyn train station is a 5 minute walk with regular trains.  There are also regular buses stopping 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.
