Event description
The Garden Jungle: How to Save our Insects

About this Event

We are delighted to announce that our second Spring Lecture will be given by Dave Goulson, Professor of Biology at University of Sussex, a specialist in bee ecology, publisher and author.

The Garden Jungle: How to Save our Insects

We are in the midst of the 6th mass extinction event, with extinctions occurring faster than at any time in the last 65 million years. ‘Bioabundance’ is in decline, with recent studies showing that insects in particular seem to be disappearing fast. If it continues, this will have profound consequences for mankind and for our planet. Dave Goulson will explain why insects are decline, and suggest how we should tackle this crisis, first by turning our gardens into oases for life, and second by fundamentally changing the way we grow food. Dave’s talk will be followed by a Q and A session.

The lecture is being organised by Woodmeadow Trust (formerly Hagge Woods Trust), the pioneering charity taking practical action for nature and people by creating woodmeadows and inspiring others to plant and look after these exceptional habitats. It was founded in 2013 with the creation of its flagship site Three Hagges Woodmeadow near York. With the invaluable support of many individuals, Trusts and Foundations and businesses, Woodmeadow Trust works to promote the UK’s nature recovery network, restoring nature through the creation of woodmeadows and educating children and families about nature and wildlife.

Kindly supported by Andrew Jackson Solicitors LLP, East Riding Horticulture Ltd and Arcus Consultancy Services/Surface Property.
