About

Renowned ecologist, Professor Alastair Fitter, will be joining us in 2022 to talk about meadows and their importance in a changing world. On this workshop he will talk about the difference between an annual wildflower patch and the much more sustainable perennial meadow, using our meadow as an example. With his vast knowledge about grassland ecosystems and soil structure you are sure to go how with plenty of information to help you grow your own meadow at home or appreciate the surviving wildflower meadows.

Alastair is a leading expert on grasses, his published work includes the Collins Guide to the Grasses, Sedges, Rushes and Ferns of Great Britain.
