This month, we are hosting several family workshops aimed at increasing the biodiversity of the graveyard. The graveyard is already an important site for wildlife of all sorts in this urban area of Newcastle, and is the home to many different species of insects as well as bats and birds.

We start on Tuesday 14th August with our Insect Houses workshop, where we’re going to construct shelters for the ladybirds, butterflies and other insects in the graveyard to hibernate in during the winter. The houses will be made out of milk cartons crammed with twigs. They can be hung from trees and placed on the ground.
