Tomorrow's Conservationists - tbc
A collaborative podcast series hosted by myself and editor Lucy Morris from ConkerNature, interviewing 15 of tomorrow's conservationists. The podcast will be recorded in Bournemouth in the Winter of 2023 and published soon after on all mainstream podcast sites. Will keep you posted!
Netley Abbey Vintage and Makers Fair - 17th Dec 2022
My last in-person event with the project, and what a way to round it off! A beautiful venue, overlooking the shimmering winter sea, many birdboxes sold, even more mince pies consumed, and my new favorite game: "Sparrow and worm" coined by two boys after visiting the stall. It's been a pleasure doing these events!
Rewilding: One House Sparrow At A Time - mid Oct, tbc.
After the success of my lecture at Global Birdfair, and previous talks, I'll be giving a short 40minute talk (plus questions) virtually, at some point in mid-October. Date tbc, likely around 7pm, and free of charge. Watch this space for details, and email me if interested at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Coveney Guided Walk - 2nd October (2022)
A guided walk led by myself, round Coveney Church and the nearby woodland sites, exploring the local flora, fauna, and some excellently made birdboxes! (Which may have been created by myself... I'm not biased).
RHS Wisley Gardens - 28th September
I attended Wisley Gardens on the 28th of September, alongside the wonderful Tree Council (The Tree Council | Working together for the love of trees) to promote our work, and advocate for more hedgerows in the UK, to help our beloved House Sparrows.
Havant Eco Fair - 24th September
A fantastic event in Celebration of The Big Green Week. Nice to see faces old and new. Due to a shortage of birdboxes and bug hotels to sell, it mainly became a "showing off" stand!
The Global Birdfair 15th - 17th July
Like nothing I'd ever been to before... Thousands of wildlife conservationists from around the Globe, all in one place. While I absolutely loved singing about Sparrows, selling my birdboxes and so much more, honestly it was just a privilege to be in the company of so many amazing people.
National Gardener's Scheme 26th June 2022
Not only did I meet hundreds of new people (and some familiar faces from the Wildlife Trust!), and not only did we raise £100s for the gardens, but we had a LIVE House Sparrow fledging from some of my birdboxes throughout the event - 4 chicks in total!
St Alben's Nature Roadshow - 21st May
The 1st of hopefully many Nature Roadshow Events. A fantastic day of stalls, music, and events. I even managed to have most of my voice by the end of it, alongside three assistants!
Coveney Church Birdbox + Bug Hotel Day - November 20th
As part of Coveny Church's project to rewild the Church grounds, an event was organized where locals sponsor a birdbox/bug hotel to be built and installed, with their name on it. You get three guesses of who made the birdboxes + bug hotels...
Pymoor, Cambridgeshire - 24th-27th August
A string of little sales to raise money for a project at my local precinct. Only 3 boxes left at the end, sold out of bug hotels and have pre-orders for next time I'm in the area!
Success! No hurricane this time which was nice; several Sparrow boxes and bug hotels sold (the silver birch ones seeming to be very popular!).
Lovedean Village Hall Sale (Havant) 4th July 2021
Had a fantastic, soggy time selling some of my finest Sparrow boxes and Bee hotels (all handmade of course!). Everything paper-based admittedly did disintegrate quite quickly in the hurricane, but who reads instructions etc anyway.
