Wildlife in Your Garden (online) - Bridgwater & Taunton College

Course Overview

In this course you will explore the range of wildlife that is supported in typical urban and rural gardens. Particular focus will be given to planting that supports wildlife throughout the seasons and horticultural practices that are supportive of maintaining and increasing the biodiversity surrounding your home. Other ways to promote wildlife within your garden will be looked at such as creating habitats for animals. You will also have the opportunity to share your own experiences and passions for wildlife with others in the group.

With so much focus on the environment we look at what can be achieved in the confines of a typical garden with a focus on planting and wildlife friendly practices. We are running this course again following its success last year. It is delivered by a senior member of our horticulture team with long experience in the industry.

During the 4 sessions you will have the opportunity to find out about ways to make your garden more wildlife friendly, how to construct habitats for wildlife and learn about the types of wildlife you may find in your garden. You will also look at the role of pollinators in the garden and why they are so important.
