Together farmers, quarry companies, local councils and conservationists are creating a network of meadows for nature.
There are lots of grassy fields in the Churnet Valley but only a few of them are good for wildlife. Some lovely, old-style grasslands, with their wide array of plants and insects, survive but they are few and isolated.
We are changing this by:
- Helping farmers to look after their flower-rich meadows (and if possible get paid for doing it).
- Working with quarry companies and local councils to create new wildlife grasslands using seeds from our finest sites.
