Go Wild In The Garden

Saturday 26 November 10-12pm, Corryong College Stephanie Alexander Garden

Discover what's going on at a grass roots level in flourishing community gardens, explore the importance of pollinator insects and their vital link to food security, identify wild pollinators and encourage them in your own garden and neighbourhood.

Go Wild in the Garden will start with a 'walk and talk' session to learn the basics pollinator spotting, counting and identification practices. It will also introduce the principles of sampling and collecting specimens.

Participants will then work with sculptor Joanne Diver to create a Pollinator Inn that can be taken home and installed in participants garden. Throughout the workshop, Joanne will use recycled materials and structures that will encourage native bees and other insect pollinators to go wild in your garden.

'Go Wild in the Garden' is perfect for families and individuals, it offers a hands on approach to learning about the fragility of our environment in a fun and informative way.

Go Wild in the Garden is a partnership project between Murray Arts, Inspiring Australia NSW, Halve Waste (Reduce Reuse Recycle) and Wild Pollinator Count with support from the Sustainable Activity Centre (SAC), local Community Gardens, Albury Botanic Garden and the Stephanie Alexander Garden in Corryong.
