Grow Wilder Takeover

24th May 2022

Saturday 18 June, drop-in 10am - 4pm

The Festival of Nature is coming to Grow Wilder! Join the Avon Wildlife Trust team for an exciting day of walks, talks and workshops, as we get inspired about wildlife, growing, and planting.

Explore the unique urban wildlife setting of Grow Wilder. The beautiful 6-acre site has ponds, woodland copses, hedgerows, a wildflower nursery, and food growing.

Drop in any time from 10am – 4pm for a packed programme of activities, no need to book! As well as enjoying the wildflower nursery and café, which will be open all day.

10am

  • Wildlife Monitoring: Moth Trap & ID
  • Grow Wilder Site Tour
  • Intro to Bird ID and Wildlife Walk
  • Food Grow and Cook Session:

How to turn a few veggies and herbs into tasty and nutritionally balanced dishes

After a tour of the market garden, you will be invited to attend the cooking and preparation of three different dishes using veggies grown at Grow Wilder.

Not a cookery class in the conventional sense, each dish will give us the opportunity to discuss food sustainability, nutrition and some cooking tips.

Hopefully, you will be happy to enjoy the meal at lunchtime!
