Woodmeadow Walk at Keele University
The Woodmeadow Walk is our first place of happiness with the aim of creating habitats for wildlife like bees, butterflies and hedgehogs, improving biodiversity on campus, and becoming a happy place for the local Keele University community to enjoy. Members of our local community came together to sow wildflower seeds and plant carefully selected wild orchard trees that will provide fruit for wildlife and to be picked by future generations.
