PENNY METAL & ALISON BENJAMIN – URBAN BUZZ
PENNY METAL & ALISON BENJAMIN
FRIDAY 9 AUGUST, 7.30pm
What life is there in a small inner-city park? Penny Metal spent five years observing a small patch in South London and identified a remarkable 555 species of bug, beetle and other insects. She will introduce us to her remarkable neighbours, including homeless bees, solitary wasps, spiders who jump, harlequin ladybirds and snail-killing flies. She will talk with urban beekeeper and author Alison Benjamin who has documented the decline of pollinators around the world and whose three books have helped transform the way we think about wildlife in urban areas.
