Event Details

Creating the right habitats in your garden can help wildlife cope with our changing climate. As Fife becomes hotter and dryer in the summer and warmer and wetter in the winter wildlife may need a helping hand to thrive.

Boosting biodiversity in our gardens will help build resilience in plants and animals. Encouraging a wide range of plants and micro-habitats helps create a mosaic of food sources, shelter and safe places to live.

At the workshop we will learn about the different types of habitat that will encourage wildlife to move in and what you can do to encourage a wide range of species. We’ll also discuss ways to improve your garden to provide food and shelter for different invertebrates, amphibians, birds and mammals.

To get the best from the workshop please bring along a photograph of a part of your garden or growing space that you would like to improve for wildlife.

Dr Gillian Fyfe is the Lead for Climate Friendly Gardens at Climate Action Fife and will be delivering this workshop. Gillian is based at PLANT, Tayport Community Garden and has worked for the RSPB and St Andrews Botanic Garden. She is Joint County Recorder for butterflies in Fife and Clacks.

Coffee/tea and snacks included in workshop
