Bees and Beyond: Ecosystem Services at a Garden Scale

Free webinar with Dr Linda Birkin exploring the importance of gardens for the wider environment in which they are nestled.

Gardening success and invertebrate activity are deeply intertwined, for better or worse! Demonstrating that the beneficial side of this relationship vastly outweighs the negative is hugely important for maximising the ecological value of gardens – as well as improving horticultural outcomes. Pollination and pest control are the easiest of these ‘ecosystem services’ to illustrate at garden scales. These Buzz Club projects aim to highlight both in practical and entertaining ways.

Dr Linda Birkin is a specialist in citizen science and urban entomology. She has a particular interest in ecological outreach and wildlife gardening.
