Wildlife Gardening in schools

Create your own school wildlife garden

We will help you plan and design your outdoor grounds in an interactive session with your pupils. Following on from this we can help you develop your ideas and make them reality. We can help make herb and sensory gardens, nectar borders, plant trees, hedges and orchards, sow meadows, create willow structures, bird feeders, bird boxes, bug hotels and hedgehog homes or do general maintenance. All of these activities we do with your pupils.

 

 

 


Discover and explore wildlife at your school or local nature reserve

Our education staff are happy to run bug hunts, plant spotting and bird watching sessions for all ages at your school. We can develop sessions to suit your needs, locality and curriculum requirements. Or if you prefer, you are welcome to come to our reserves and discover local habitats and wildlife there.

 

 

 


Grow vegetables and fruit at your school

“Sowing, Growing and Eating”. Teach your pupils about where our food comes from in an inspiring way by growing your own. Pupils also learn about healthy eating and will usually eat what they grow themselves. We can instruct you in all aspects of vegetable and fruit growing.

 

 

 

 

 

Join the North Wales Schools Orchard Project

Fruit trees are an asset to a school. You can plan lessons around them; they look pretty in blossom, are good for pollinators and produce apples, pears or plums for all to enjoy. We can help you choose varieties, plant them with the pupils and care for them so you get the most out of them.

 

 

 


Build willow structures for play and storytime

We will help you create your own, green living willow dome, tunnel, fence or arbour. These attractive, living sculptures fuel children’s imagination and encourage active play.
