Wildflower Meadows

Monday 12 October 2020


The Talk

Alarmed at the rapid and devastating decline in flower rich meadows, Michael and Jane Joseph sowed their small paddock with native seed 30 years ago. At the time there was no internet or advice and so they learnt by trial and error. Initially it was a failure and a disappointment but now it is absolutely stunning as you will see in the presentation. Michael will share his experience with us so that we can successfully create our own small patch relatively quickly, cheaply and easily. Learn the importance of meadows to to wildlife, to your garden, your health and to the planet.

The Speaker

Michael Joseph was an airline pilot and engineer, with a strong interest in the natural environment.
