Time: 10am to 4pm

Woodmeadows do require consistent long-term management of both the grassland and woodland components.  This demonstration day offers a chance to experience something of a woodmeadow in action.  Richard Brown of Emorsgate Seeds (who supplied some of sown meadow seed) will be available to demonstrate the use and value of a scythe for managing meadows and grassland. There will be opportunities to ask questions on the creation and management of meadows, as well as have a go with a scythe.
