Trust to hold first ever 'wild' webinar

The county’s largest nature conservation charity is holding its first ever interactive ‘wild’ webinar next week as part of its virtual offering.

Staff from Staffordshire Wildlife Trust are running a Wild Gardening Live Q&A event on Wednesday 6th May between 1pm and 2pm.

The event will be held as part of the charity’s Get Wild at Home virtual experience, which was launched in April to give people free tips and workshops on how to connect with nature.

The event will be completely free to watch, and will see the Trust’s Senior Planning Officer, Kate Dewey, give advice on gardening live from her home with a question and answer session at the end.

Lauren Penny, Senior Marketing Officer for the Trust, said: “This live session is aimed at adults but when you sign-up, we'll also send you some wild gardening activity sheets that the whole family can get involved with. 

“Connecting with nature has been proven to improve mental health and well-being and during this difficult time, we need it more than ever. Through our Get Wild at Home experience we are bringing some wild into your homes and are offering advice and tips on how you can support and embrace wildlife at home.

“Our first live event will give people the chance to learn about the benefits of wild gardening, and how to achieve a wildlife friendly garden.”

Anyone who wishes to sign up can do so for free here
