Build an insect mansion

Pallets and pipes stacked up to create bug hotel

Join us in the gardens at Rainham Hall to build a mini mansion which will provide a great habitat for insects and encourage biodiversity.

Get hands-on in the gardens by helping us to build an insect mansion on Saturday 21 May, 11am-3pm. We're aiming to create a habitat for our insect friends which will look like a minature version of Rainham Hall. The session will be led by our Community Gardener who will give you his top tips on how to attract friendly insects to your own gardens. It'll be fun for all the family. All ages and abilities welcome. Gloves will be provided but please wear suitable outdoor clothing and boots/wellies. We'll go ahead come rain or shine, so please dress for the weather.

Tickets: £3 per person. No pre-booking is required.

Location: Our meeting point is in the gardens, but please ask at the Stables Café for details.
