How to make a Community Meadow

Creating a Community Meadow is a great way to create a buzz in your local area.

Creating a meadow full of colour and the sounds of summer is a simple way to bring people together to do something that will make a real difference to our bees, butterflies, hoverflies and other wildlife.

Community meadows provide important habitat for wild pollinators and are a wonderful way to engage local communities.
