Wildlife and Gardening Event

On Saturday, 18th May, Trustgreen teamed up with Redrow to host a fun community event at Kingsley Manor in Harrogate. The team provided information and tips on local wildlife and various ways to introduce wildlife into gardens. During the event, they also hosted activities and live demonstrations for the residents and families, giving them the opportunity to get involved and get their hands dirty.

Event Activites

During the day, the team hosted a wildflower seed bomb-making activity for the children. This engaging event allowed the kids to create their own seed bombs, which they could take home and plant in their gardens. These seed bombs can help to introduce a variety of beneficial wildflower species to support local pollinators.

Additionally, one of the Trustgreen team members organised a toad abode demonstration. This showed the residents how they can build their own habitat for toads in their gardens using materials like old plant pots or hollowed-out logs. The children enjoyed getting involved in this activity, learning about different types of toad abodes, and even trying their hand at building their own.

The team provided residents with informative sheets on wildflowers, along with seeds to scatter in their gardens, and a guide featuring various butterfly species that can be spotted in the Harrogate region. Our Biodiversity Net Gain & Habitat Ecologist, Finley Wisdom, shared her knowledge on wildflowers and the benefits they bring to local pollinators.

Rooted in Nature
