Welcome to Herefordshire Meadows

Herefordshire Meadows is an informal network of meadow owners managing and conserving flower rich grassland.

Founded in 2015 to arrange informal visits to grassland in Herefordshire, sixty three Herefordshire Meadows members are now supported by Natural England as a Facilitation Fund Group. We work collaboratively across the whole of the Herefordshire landscape holding events and discussions on how to manage, create and restore meadows to benefit wildlife, soil and water quality, historic features, natural flood management and livestock farming businesses.

We are building up a network of local people with skills in plant identification, management advice and contracting services for grassland management.

Herefordshire Meadows activities are open to all, space permitting, and you can join the mailing list to be notified about our activities by emailing us with your contact details.
