This wildflower meadow course will equip you with the skills and knowledge to create, restore and enhance meadows, with a particular focus on chalk grassland. Whether you want to establish a mini meadow in your back garden or on a large scale, this course is for you.
Rachael Mairey will take you on a guided tour of The Sustainability Centre’s beautifully vibrant buzzing meadows and teach you how to establish and manage your own meadow effectively. The Sustainability Centre offers a unique opportunity to glimpse meadows through time: from new meadows to longer-established meadows to mature chalk grassland. You will be able to compare these and understand the differences between them.
Rachael will guide you through seed saving techniques and how to identify some of the country’s most beautiful flowers within this amazing habitat. You will get to sow a small selection of wildflower plug plants to take home and plant at a later date.
