Dave Goulson: Gardening to Save the Planet, Wednesday 14th April 7pm
We are delighted to welcome Dave Goulson, Professor of Biology at Sussex University, author of ‘Bumblebees’ and ‘A Sting in the Tale’ and founder of the Bumblebee Conservation Trust.
Dave Goulson has turned his attention to our everyday gardens and how we can make them a haven for all insects in his new book ‘The Garden Jungle’. This is a wonderful introduction to the hundreds of small creatures with whom we live cheek-by-jowl and of the myriad ways that we can encourage them to thrive.
The Garden Jungle is about the wildlife that lives right under our noses, in our gardens and parks, between the gaps in the pavement, and in the soil beneath our feet. Dave Goulson gives us an insight into the fascinating and sometimes weird lives of these creatures, taking us burrowing into the compost heap, digging under the lawn and diving into the garden pond. He explains how our lives and ultimately the fate of humankind are inextricably intertwined with that of earwigs, bees, lacewings and hoverflies, unappreciated heroes of the natural world.
An unmissable opportunity to meet Dave Goulson and find out more.
