July 4th and 5th – Work party on the Meadow

June 20, 2015

Please come along to a work party on the Meadow which will be held on Saturday and Sunday 4th and 5th July.  We will meet at 10am at the Crosby Gate as usual.

It’s that ragwort time of year again – so the main objective will be ragwort pulling.  We need to clear it before the annual haycut on the Meadow due to its toxicity to livestock.  The haycut reduces soil fertility which in the longer term will increase bio-diversity of plant life and wild flowers on the Meadow.

Please bring garden gloves and a strong fork!

Hope to see you there.
