Helping wildlife out within you garden is both rewarding and of tremendous value to the myriad wild creatures which live around us. In this one-day workshop we will be looking at the various ways you can help wildlife by creating a safe and fertile oasis in which they can live, feed and breed. Winners of the 2018 Dorset Wildlife Trust’s Wildlife Gardening Awards, the gardens at Sculpture by the Lakes show the many ways in which we can achieve a rich habitat for wildlife.
