Winter may be a time when lots of animals go into hibernation, but that does not mean there aren’t plenty of things you can do to look after the wildlife in your garden over the chillier months. This is why the Wild Bunch are certainly not taking a break from their monthly meet-ups over the festive period.
The meeting on the 17th November at 1.30 will focus on the power of composting. Wild Buncher Peter will be sharing his wealth of knowledge, having been the driving force of the Loop compost project, and will let attendees know how they can best improve compost production in their gardens.
And on 15th December the Wild Bunch will be getting into the Christmas spirit by crafting their own Christmas gifts. These gifts – to be given to the inhabitants of our gardens of course – will make sure they stay well-watered and well fed over the winter months, and will be made using exclusively natural products.
Cllr Fiona Barrows said, “Christmas is all about giving, and so it’s no surprise to me that the group that have been giving to nature all year round aren’t letting up for winter. I’m excited to learn more about how I can best look after my soil, and to see what creative, naturally-sourced gifts we can make for our friends in nature”.
Both of these sessions will be held between 1.30 and 2.30pm at Frome Town Hall, and November’s session can also be attended remotely. For more information and to book your space, go to www.frometowncouncil.gov.uk/wild-bunch/
