Weald Meadow Nectar Networks (WMNN) Online

Welcome to my very first blog as the newest member of The Grasslands Trust team.  As I write the sun is shining and this fills me with joy about the long summer ahead and thoughts of the good number of sunny seed harvesting days to come. 

I am Dawn Brickwood the Meadows Officer for TGT – Weald Meadows Nectar Networks (formerly the Weald Meadows Initiative).  Based in Battle in East Sussex, I support landowners throughout the Weald (Sussex, Kent, and a small part of Surrey) with their neutral-acidic ancient meadow management and I also provide advice and a source of seed for enhancement and creation projects.

I receive lots of enquiries from Wealden landowners and gardeners at this time of the year about sowing seed. For Weald Native Origin Seed (WNOS) we ideally recommend a good lead in time and operate a forward orders list for autumn sowing of our seed.  Please feel free to contact me for advice.   In association with project partners Agrifactors and RBG Kew  I hope to start hand harvesting wildflowers as early as possible in May to provide a good range of local native species for our foraging invertebrates. 

The Grasslands Trust pages contain excellent advice and as WMNN develops, more news will be available on our dedicated project page.  For now, Weald on-line advice and technical information can be accessed through our partners HWLT website
