Get involved with Pollinator Paths

There are loads of ways to get involved with Pollinator Paths this spring

 

Check out our blogs and expert-led videos on growing, creating windowsill boxes, and how to identify pollinators such as bees, butterflies, hoverflies and garden moths. 

 

Even small spaces can help struggling pollinators, a windowsill box full of rocket is enough to harvest greens for your salad and provides much needed nectar and pollen for a passing solitary bee. No gardening experience is necessary to take part – just enthusiasm. Download our Pollinator Paths flyer (pdf) to find out more. 

 

Have you received your Pollinator Paths seeds already? Download our guide to sowing them here (pdf).

Join the PollinatorPathsEdmonton Facebook group to share pictures, growing progress, local knowledge or ask questions. This is a great way to stay up to date with project updates, connect with “garden hubs” distributing materials and neighbours to share advice, seeds or compost! Feel free to add friends and family so they can grow a pollinator-friendly patch at home too. 

 

You can also find us on Instagram: @Pollinatorpaths  and on Twitter @globalactplan #PollinatorPaths

Have you hosted a windowsill box? We’d love to hear from you!  

Do you want extra support for gardening & growing food? Join our free gardening Q&A sessions with Brentford Together!


Over the following months, Auberon from Cultivate London is running a “how to” series on getting your garden growing via Brentford Together’s Facebook Live - join by clicking on @BrentfordTogether’s live feed on Wednesdays at 3pm and have your questions ready for the comments box. Blog posts will be going up every Friday and there will be follow up Q&A sessions on Wednesdays and some instructional videos in-between. We’ll be looking into how upcycle and recycle materials for planting through crafty activities and avoiding unnecessary use of chemicals or plastics – important elements for a pollinator-friendly garden as pesticides and certain fertilisers harm insects and soil life. See you on Wednesday at 3pm!
