These half-day sessions will give systematic practice in the identification of key Herefordshire meadow herbs both with and without flowers, as well as offering opportunities for more general plant species identification.
We have designed these sessions on Herefordshire meadows sites of increasing complexity,
aiming to pick up the range of skill levels in the group. You can book for 1 , 2 or 3 of these sessions.
PLACES STRICTLY limited so please consider which event(s) you would like to book up for, and phone Caroline Hanks if you have any queries.
