In the delightful surroundings of the Trust’s Foxburrow Farm nature reserve, you will learn about the habitat requirements of different wildlife species most typical of gardens. Discover how planting, design, garden maintenance and the addition of nesting and wintering homes can aid survival.

Experienced wildlife tutor, Cathy Smith, Foxburrow Farm’s Learning Officer, will reveal the oft curious methods that animals employ in order to shelter and survive in the wild. Cathy will give you specific pointers on how you can help to make your own gardens a haven for wildlife, whatever their size.
