Recycled Pallet ‘Bug Hotel’ – Children’s Workshop

Tracey O’Connell

9.30 am

In this ‘hands-on’ workshop, Tracey will be demonstrating how to set up a ‘Bug Hotel’ using easily obtainable recycled materials, including old pallets.  A bug hotel is a place where all the good bugs can come and set up home, lay their eggs in safety and have a plentiful supply of good food available in the surrounding gardens for their babies when they hatch out; when the babies grow up, they will stay in your garden eating all the bad bugs who dare to come and eat your plants.  Bring the kids along and get them involved in this very rewarding experience.  As this is an outside workshop, don’t forget to wear your hats, bring along your water bottle as well as a pair of gloves.
