Put the pesticide down and leave a few dandelions be. Come along to our Gardening with Wildlife course and learn how you can use native wildlife to your advantage.
On this 10-week practical course, you can learn how to:
- Feed your soil to feed your plants,
- Make free organic plant food,
- Create a successful compost heap,
- Make small, pretty wild patches to bring in all the gardener’s wild friends,
- Companion plant your vegetables with other helpful plants.
There will be plenty of goodies to take home to use in your garden.
The course will run for 10-weeks on Tuesdays, at 10am – 1pm, from 10th April to 12th June, at the polytunnel in Tí Chulainn, Maphoner, Mullaghbane. A small number of hand tools will be available, we would recommend you bring your own trowel and hand fork, if possible.
The cost of the course is just £50; however, volunteers who have built up over 75 hours volunteering with the Landscape Partnership will be offered this training for free, while those who have completed 35 hours will qualify for a 50% reduction in fees. Registration is essential as places are limited, please only sign up if you can attend all or the majority of the sessions.
