Building Diversity: Plant an Insectory Workshop
To maximise fruit production from your edible trees and plants, an insectary is a beneficial addition to your garden or orchard space. Consider implementing it as a separate garden, in a guild below fruit trees, or as a border to your edible garden beds. An insectary offers food for pollinators and predatory insects and works as a natural remedy for reducing infestations of pests and disease. This workshop will cover a selection of plant species and focus on the benefits of including these in your garden design.

Registrations close on 16 October.
