The areas of grassland left over from Hogacre Common’s past as a sports pitch are quite sterile of wildlife and will be encouraged to transform into lowland meadow which will be much more biodiverse and host many species of flora and fauna.

Come and help to mow/scythe, rake and seed the young meadow!

Hogacre meadow has been mown. First we cut – scything and mowing. We left the grass to dry. We raked it into windrows. We baled the hay – 100+ bales!
We look forward to using it for growing veg next year.
