Free Gardening for Wildlife Drop-in sessions

Homes First and the Open Spaces Teams have organised “Gardening for Wildlife’ drop-in sessions in Lewes and Eastbourne, to engage with residents about encouraging wildlife into our gardens.   

The drop-in sessions have been paid for from TOLD and Eastbourne Area Panels via the environmental budget

 The FREE drop-in’s are as follows:

Thursday 5th  March, 10.30am to 1.30pm at Tenant Resource Centre, 2a Horsfield Road, Lewes, BN7 2TA;

Tuesday 10th March, 10.30am  to 1.30pm at Langney Shopping Centre, 64 Kingfisher Drive, Eastbourne, BN23 7RT

Gardens make up a substantial resource for wildlife and when managed with nature in mind can provide vital food, shelter, and corridors for movement.  Our Specialist Open Space and Nature Reserves team would absolutely love to offer advice and helpful hints on how to do this in your garden.  There will be free wildflower seeds, and bird and bug homes too.

Please come to talk about how we can all work together for the benefit of our beloved local wildlife. 

With climate change being a ‘hot’ topic and British wildlife being in serious trouble, the Council has committed to adopt measures to help tackle these issues head on.   This includes the adoption of a Pollinator Strategy, a Pesticide-free Policy, alongside the ambition to become Carbon Neutral by 2030.
