Talk: Creating a wildlife garden by Gavin Haig
Time & Location
About the Event
Dr Gavin Haig, naturalist and former surgeon, has studied the healing properties of many native plants, with much of the work carried out in his own garden on the River Exe. This has featured on TV, has a great variety of habitats, and even provides a home for one of the rarest butterflies in Europe - the Marsh Fritillary.
He says, “My passion for wildlife and the natural world began 60 years ago or more, during an idyllic boyhood in rural Essex, which allowed me to explore woods and streams, to climb trees and make dens, and to run freely in wildflower meadows, scattering rainbows of butterflies. I was enchanted then, and I’m enchanted still, though the world is very different now. Passion for wildlife led me to develop a wildlife garden beside the inpatient wards at Tiverton Hospital - a healing garden..."
