Stuart 'The Wildman' Mabbutt talks about attracting wildlife to gardens and how we can begin to appreciate it better by using our senses and exploring our collective psychology and sociology.

We look but do we see? We listen but do we hear? We touch but do we feel? We sniff but do we smell? We eat but do we taste?

This is an ideal chance to get a signed copy of The Wildman's 4 books and highlights cds' of his radio show.

Special guests sometimes included.

About Stuart Mabbutt

Stuart 'The Wildman' Mabbutt has been a professional wildlife gardener for 30 years. He writes widely in magazines on the subject and recently published his first four books and is busy writing the next four.

He leads nature workshops for business people and individuals to show how engaging with nature using the 5 senses can help manage stress and pain as well as be a good team building tool. He also carries out nature sensory engagement activities with families and children to develop lifelong learning, resilience and a positive attitude to life.

Stuart's media work includes being a wildlife sound recordist and making the independent wildlife radio show, Going Wild With Wildlife which transmits 30 times a week on 11 differing stations across Britain. He is also working on ‘The Peoples Countryside’ project giving nature a voice though podcasts, radio, audio, photography, film and on the stage.

An extension of his work and interests include developing some academic research with Oxford University into the benefits of nature on the human body. He also has an ambition to perform on the main stage at the O2 Arena in London and is developing a stage show plus an experiential modern art/performance concept to start the ball rolling in getting him there.
