Nature-Friendly Gardening

As we all look forward to getting outdoors during the spring and summer seasons, what can we each do to help reverse the decline in our natural environment...?


Tackling the climate and ecological crises can start with simple actions at home in your own outdoor spaces. Britain’s private gardens are estimated to cover an area bigger than all of our nature reserves combined, so at over 10 million acres there are loads of opportunities for all of us to make a difference!

During this session we'll learn about:
     - creating habitats to encourage wildlife
     - planting for pollinators
     - understanding and improving soil health
     - no dig methods
     - home composting
     - avoiding damaging use of peat

We'll include top tips on easy practical ways to help nature, increase biodiversity and cut harmful carbon emissions. It's great fun too!

This event is part of the Zero Carbon Cumbria Partnership's work towards our target of becoming a net zero county by 2037.

We hugely appreciate the valued support of our contributors to help make this event possible:
    Cumbria Wildlife Trust
    Garden Organic 

The event is also timed to coincide with the RHS's National Gardening Week.
