Wildflower Meadows with Alastair Fitter

June 14, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

We are delighted that renowned ecologist, Professor Alastair Fitter, will be returning in 2023 after his sell out workshop in 2022. He will be talking about meadows and their importance in a changing world. He is a leading expert on grasses, his published work includes the Collins Guide to the Grasses, Sedges, Rushes and Ferns of  Great Britain.

On this workshop he will talk about the difference between an annual wildflower patch and the much more sustainable perennial meadow, using our meadow as an example. With his vast knowledge about grassland ecosystems and soil structure you are sure to go away with plenty of information to help you grow your own meadow at home or appreciate the surviving wildflower meadows even more.

We will be making a donation to the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust from the ticket sales to this event.

Cost – £45.
