We were given an interesting and informative talk by Eddie Asbery from Warwickshire Wildlife Trust (the leading environmental charity in Warwickshire, based at Brandon Marsh) on “Gardening for Wildlife”.

Their philosophy is to work towards the land being managed purely for wildlife protection – for example by leaving flower heads or berries for the birds, log piles for insects, lacewings and hedgehogs and for those of us who sometimes feel the lawn is too immaculate it was suggested to leave it longer (or set aside small areas to develop naturally) to allow grubs and wildlife to feed on matter that would otherwise just be wasted as cuttings taken away to the tip.  I hope we all learned something from his findings.

Next month’s talk on the 19th is “Africa, Water & Life” – could be interesting!  Also, don’t forget our annual Christmas Party in December where a feast of sumptuous food will be consumed.  It’s never too late to join and new members are always welcomed.
