Weald Meadows Nectar Networks (WMNN) has just completed two consecutive Saturday events talking to well over 100 landowners and members of the public.
Heathfield Agricultural Show took place on the 26th May WMNN with partners and agents Agrifactors had a busy day talking to landowners with queries. The wildflower trough with turf depicting our Wealden meadows attracted plenty of attention and blended with the stands bright street party theme. One of the busiest shows to date with sunny weather, as featured in the Sussex Express . Agrifactors won best trade stand for the 4th year running, so many congratulations to them – aided in no small way by our wildflowers and displays!
On Saturday the 2nd June, I also attended The Railway Land Festival 2012 to celebrate 25 years of sustainability, wildflower meadow creation and ‘Naturegain’. A fantastically well attended event with 1500 people throughout the afternoon. Participants enjoyed the pavilion, nature reserve, stands and quiz. As a bonus, the created Linklater meadows – coming up for their first anniversary of sowing were displayed in all their glory behind the colourful Vanishing Meadows exhibition panels.
