A licence from Lancaster City Council has provided an excellent opportunity to enable the charity to grow wild flower plugs for Hermitage Field Community Meadow, other local wild flower areas and contribute wild flower plugs and seed of local provenance to the Councils own Grassland Management project. Funding from the Areti Charitable Trust has enabled us to expand this project considerably. Post lockdown we will be working with and training local volunteers to grow and care for wild flowers at the Councils Westgate Depot.
A combination of wet benches and dry potting areas will allow volunteers to grow and raise plugs.
Thank you to the Lancaster City Council team who have supported this project and renovated the poly tunnel.
