Go wild in the garden this summer

Londoners’ Wildlife Gardening Conference and Fayre
Saturday 11 June 2005, 10.30–17.00

Interested in bees, butterflies and other garden animals? The second Londoners’ Wildlife Gardening Conference and Fayre, organised by the London Biodiversity Partnership, is the perfect place to learn all about garden residents and how to encourage more wildlife to your patch. This is a unique opportunity to hear expert views and exchange ideas with like-minded gardeners within a magnificent setting.

This year, in addition to the fayre, there will be a conference including a series of practical workshops on a variety of subjects from beetles and slugs to garden muck and pond life led by gardening experts and scientists. Chelsea Award winner Julie Toll, will give the keynote speech on creative and beautiful wildlife garden designs. There are 120 places available on the conference, so keen wildlife gardening enthusiasts should book early to avoid disappointment.

At the fayre visitors of all ages will be able to learn about stag beetles and wild flowers, insect identification and bird boxes. Children can take part in workshops to explore the Wildlife Garden as scientists and discover hidden invertebrates, while others can have their face painted wildlife style. Stalls will be selling wild flowers, bird boxes and giving advice on how to make your garden a wildlife refuge.
