Gardening, naturally: Saving wildlife, water, and money (Q&A session)

Spring is in the air, and it’s nearly time to get stuck into gardening!

There are lots of tips for environmentally friendly and money-saving gardening out there. With so many choices, it can often be challenging to discern what’s best for you and your garden.

Join experts from the Royal Horticultural Society and Norfolk Rivers Trust to take a journey from garden to groundwater, wildlife to watercourse. In this special webinar, you will explore how to enhance your garden’s health while benefitting local wildlife (and your wallet!).


If you tend to a garden or allotment near a river or small watercourse (even one that might dry out over the summer) you may have additional responsibilities and unique opportunities to support local ecosystems. In regions like East Anglia, chalk streams are prevalent. However, chalk streams are globally rare and are sensitive habitats that face pressure from water extraction for drinking purposes and climate change. Reducing our water bill can help reduce our environmental impact. Learning how to be more water-smart at home and in our gardens is a huge help for our local environment.

Through embracing natural gardening methods, understanding how our water moves through catchments, and learning what factors affect river health, we can all be empowered to make positive changes that safeguard our water and  rivers.
