Want to know what a native bee or hover flies look like? Are they in your garden already? Why is it important that these beneficial insects have a haven in urban gardens? How do they help with bringing flower beds and food gardens to life?
Let us help you unravel the jigsaw puzzle that eco-gardening, native plants, ecological awareness and home food production can present. The first easy steps of eco-gardening starts here. Learn what our native bees and helpful insects look like, and the basic eco-gardening support tools required to create natural havens in the best garden environment.
In this 2 hour workshops, together we will;
- Select companion plants to match your gardening intention,
- Make a native bee pole for your garden,
- See native bees and hover flies in action in our own garden, and
- Develop a gardening strategy for you with appropriate eco-gardening tools.
In addition to your new native bee pole, you’ll also take 4 companion plants best suited to attracting helpful insects into your own garden, (and a cup of tea!)
