Wildflowers for the Meadows project

Description of activity

This project helped community groups learn how to grow their own late flowering meadow species plug plants, which they then planted out into their chosen meadows. The groups involved were Chipping in Bloom (Chipping Community Garden site), Friends of Spring Wood (Spring Wood meadow), Friends of Beacon Fell (Beacon Fell meadow), St James' School, Clitheroe (Stephen Park), Lune Valley Community Beekeepers (Life for a Life meadow). We produced instructional videos to show how to collect, store, germinate and grow seed into plug plants, and training groups in scything, purchasing kit to allow them to manage their meadows.
