Climate Friendly Gardening
Saturday 23rd July : 10:00 am - 12:30 pm
This workshop on biodiversity, growing and sustainability will be led by Dr Liz Lakin, a senior lecturer at the University of Dundee and the Academic Lead for the Living Lab at Dundee Botanic Garden.
Climate change is already having an impact on our gardens and growing spaces. With a few changes, your garden could become a well-balanced ecosystem and contribute to saving the planet.
During this workshop we’ll be exploring what makes a garden an effective growing environment, the role biodiversity has in this, and the need to plant for sustainability.
Through a series of hands-on activities, discussions and creative exploration we’ll share some practical ideas to help your own garden thrive.
About our tutor, Dr Liz Lakin: Trained originally as a school biology teacher, Liz continues her teaching and research in biology and environmental science at Dundee. She has a keen interest in all things to do with plants.
