Queer Gardening 101: Backyard Biodiversity with Colin Clews
June 4 @ 7:00 pm - 7:45 pm
In 2016, a consortium of more than 70 British government and nongovernment agencies reported that the UK is one of the most nature-deprived countries in the world. In May 2019, Cambridge City Council declared a Biodiversity Crisis. We need to take urgent action at every level, political, social and personal. This session will explore what we, as gardeners, can do.
It will begin with a short film of information and ideas. It will be followed by a live discussion on Zoom, where participants can explore possible strategies and potential obstacles for increasing biodiversity in their own gardens. This is open to anyone, whether they have an allotment, a backyard or a balcony.
Colin Clews has had an interest in gardening and the environment for nearly 50 years. During that period he has also been a social and political activist. For example, in 1972 he was a founding member of Tyneside Friends of the Earth. In 2009, he initiated the Transition Cambridge Food Group. He is currently coordinator of Queers in Shorts.
