Nurturing Nature speaking at Grow Wild Network Day: Prestatyn Sat 8th April 2017
I am really looking forward to this event and talking about Wildlife Gardening for a change! Although bees will buzz into the presentation no doubt! This is a free talk with events starting at 0.9.45. Come along and enjoy what looks like a great day out in Prestatyn!
Grow Wild is hosting a network training day in Prestatyn for community groups, youth project participants, volunteer mentors and project partners.
The day will inspire and inform you about new ways to enhance your community impact through native wild flowers, plants and fungi, engage new audiences and share your project’s success.
This is an exciting opportunity to meet other groups, discuss creative ideas and learn from special guests that will offer both a local and UK-wide perspective.
Up to two people from a community group can register to attend.
We look forward to seeing you there!
