On-line – Creating your own Wildlife Garden, based on the book ‘Wild your Garden’ by Joel Ashton




Starting the business in 2005, Joel has gained a wealth of experience over the last 15 years and is a highly experienced landscape designer undertaking consultations, designing and implementing a wealth of wildlife gardens, ponds, meadows and hard landscaping projects through his company.

Joel regularly gives talks and workshops to ensure his knowledge is shared, enabling others to play their part in the re-wilding of their own back gardens and larger companies to do the same with their grounds, encouraging the successful return of wildlife to these areas.

He is very passionate about gardening for butterflies in particular, using his own back garden which has been transformed into a haven for all wildlife, enabling him to produce high quality informative videos and media to share his experience and knowledge when consulting or giving talks and workshops.  Joel is a proud ambassador for both Butterfly Conservation and the British Dragonfly Society.

Joel shares his extensive knowledge and experience via social media and YouTube alongside case studies and portfolios.  Whatever the job, “working with nature, for nature” is the priority. So, whether you have a tiny urban front garden, a large rural paddock or perhaps a community green space, Joel and his experienced team are here to help!

The plan for this full day is as follows with breaks and time for questions:

1. Wildlife Ponds and meadows
2. Native Trees and Shrubs
3. Herbaceous borders
4. Planning a garden
5. Design layout

The cost for this on-line event, is £50 per WFGA member, £60 non WFGA member.  A video of the workshop will be available to attendees after the event but not for separate purchase.
