Gardening for Wildlife
This is a wonderful course with a combination of theory, practical work, fun and a sense of fulfillment.
It taught me so many things about the natural environment all around me - plants, ants, bees, birds, butterflies, dragonflies ...Ample resource material is provided and indications are given towards further resources.
The ongoing guidance provided by experts is very valuable, helping us to turn theory into practice.The gentle but constant reminders about pending assignments help keep us on track! An added advantage is that we link up with like-minded people from different places. This creates synergy and provides us with hope. Most of all, it is fun to discover how much wildlife is already there in your garden and how much more you can easily attract.A big thank you to the organizers.And to all of you who are reading this ... don't miss this chance! Join the course and thereby join up with a growing band of people creating 'gardens of hope' for a better world.
