Time/date of training: 10am-4pm, Wed 05 July 2017 |
Location: Oxford, Oxfordshire
Facilitator: Rod d'Ayala and Rob Aquilina
This pond workshop will demonstrate why ponds are important and how making new ones can have an almost immediate effect on local biodiversity. The workshops will discuss basic pond ecology and construction techniques and show how new ponds can be successfully made and managed, basic dos and don’ts of site selection, construction and planting, guidance on planning and legal considerations. This site near Oxford offers the opportunity to compare a variety of wildlife ponds including a garden pond, small and large pond complexes and seasonal ponds.
