A Mold garden centre is set to host an engaging and educational “sustainability day” in collaboration with the North Wales Wildlife Trust later this month.

The event on Saturday, October 28 at The Woodworks Garden Centre promises to be a day of eco-friendly activities and a chance to delve into the world of nature and conservation.

From 9:00 a.m. until 4:30 p.m., visitors of all ages are invited to participate in a variety of activities and talks aimed at promoting sustainability and wildlife conservation.

The family-friendly event is an excellent opportunity to connect with nature and learn more about the valuable work carried out by the Trust.

Throughout the day, a team from the North Wales Wildlife Trust will be on hand at The Woodworks Garden Centre to facilitate pop-up talks, gardening activities, and interactive games. Some of the event’s highlights include:

  • Building Bug Hotels and Seed Bombs: Get creative with Helen Carter-Emsell.
  • Potting Up Locally Rare Trees: A hands-on experience led by Sarah Ellis.
  • Illustrated Talk on Beaver Reintroduction: Learn about these fascinating creatures from Adrian Lloyd Jones.
  • Illustrated Talk on the Rare Wildlife of North Wales: Explore the region’s unique biodiversity with Jonny Hulson.
  • Kit to Control Invasive Alien Species: Discover effective strategies with Gemma Rose.
  • Invasive Species Hunt: Join Tomos Jones for an informative and fun session.

Iwan Gwyn, Manager of The Woodworks Garden Centre, expressed enthusiasm for the partnership with the North Wales Wildlife Trust, saying, “With sustainability and protecting the environment becoming an increasingly important topic, we at The Woodworks are committed to playing our part and supporting the wider community.”

Iwan further explained that the partnership has already resulted in the sale of Hawthorn hedging grown at the Trust’s Maeshafn nursery near Mold.

With each specimen sold, a donation is made to support the Trust. Additionally, more tree species like Field Maple and Hazel are being grown and will be available for purchase at The Woodworks next year.

Speaking about the upcoming sustainability day, Iwan said, “We can’t wait to welcome The North Wales Wildlife Trust and the community to our Garden Centre.”

The North Wales Wildlife Trust manages 35 nature reserves in North Wales and works with various organisations and landowners to safeguard and connect wildlife sites across the county. Their mission is to inspire local communities and young people to care for wildlife in their surroundings.

As sustainability and conservation continue to gain importance in today’s world, events like the one at The Woodworks Garden Centre provide an excellent platform for people of all ages to engage with nature and learn about efforts to protect our environment. The partnership between The Woodworks and the North Wales Wildlife Trust exemplifies the commitment to a greener and more sustainable future.
