About Wildflowers, hedges and hedgerows, bats and barn-owlsHelp us enrich our farmland with new woodlands, better hedges and more wildflowers.
Help us to increase the nature value of our farmland by improving hedgerows and field margins. Working alongside our staff and other volunteers sowing wildflower strips for pollinating bees and other insects, sowing field margins with seed mixes providing food for birds, mice and voles, all helping our farmland to support a wide range of insect and animal life, including rare bats and Barn Owls. Also helping to maintain the hedges in and around the walled garden. There will also be a wide range of other estate and garden tasks available to keep things varied and interesting!
