Real gardens - Real Science
Gardening is a popular pastime, but not one that we do alone. Whether hidden beneath the soil, buzzing in the borders or singing on the fence, thousands of wild animals share our spaces, providing vital support to our own horticultural successes - yet we know very little about most of them!
The Buzz Club intends to change that. We are a citizen science club, bringing together gardeners and volunteer scientists of all ages to answer important questions about garden wildlife, such as:
Why are once-common species disappearing, and how quickly is it happening?
How can we turn our gardens into havens for pollinators and other wildlife?
How 'wildlife-friendly' are our actions, really?
What can we do better?
