Event description
On this one-day course, you will consider practical options for successful meadow management within Holywells Park’s beautiful parkland.

About this Event

Discover how best to manage and optimise grassland for plants and insects, how to recognise naturally rich grassland and how to increase the value of anthropogenically ‘improved’ grassland for wildlife.

You will be introduced to cutting and grazing techniques to manage grassland for wildlife and learn about the importance of cutting in a mosaic. There will be an opportunity to discuss specific site problems and issues, and to explore some practical solutions.

For those wishing to create a new meadow from scratch, we have organised a Meadow Creation course with David Dowding prior to this course. Meadow Creation in Holywells Park takes place on September 24.

Please bring: a packed lunch, stout footwear, weather-appropriate clothing, notepad and pen
