The Hampshire and the Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust are the only conservation charity committed to improving conditions for all wildlife in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight. They manage 48 nature reserves as part of a vision to create ‘Living Landscapes’ for the future.
One of the Wildlife Trusts aims is to educate lots of people about the importance of wildflower meadows.
With this in mind, Emma Pereira, Development Officer for the Hampshire Wildlife Trust, approached us with regard to hosting an open day for some of their Wildlife Investors, here at Ashe Warren Farm. It seemed quite appropriate for us to host the event for them, due to the fact that we were the first to produce a soil-less Wildflower Turf and as a result, we have accumulated a wealth of knowledge and expertise over the years. But aside from that, we were proud to help promote the importance of wildflower meadows.
Thankfully the rain held off, allowing everyone to enjoy the fresh air and lovely sounds of Lapwings, Skylarks and Kestrels which decided to all make themselves known during the tour!
We had a very positive feedback and Emma commented. ‘Just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for hosting yesterday’s event. It was a real hit, and it was definitely worthwhile for all involved!’
Thanks Emma we were glad we could help!
