About the Event
The aim is to collect seeds and berries from a range of trees and shrubs from one side of Melbury Valley, and then to spread them to the other side of the valley, where there is currently a ‘mono culture’ of planted beech trees.
By spreading a variety of seeds and berries we'll increase the diversity of plant life and achieve a variation of height, flowers, and of fruit which will benefit insects, birds and animals and encourage them to spread throughout the area.
This is a gentle activity that is suitable for all ages and families. No experience is necessary - just come and join in for as long as you wish, bring food and drink, and clothing suitable for the weather on the day. Please book your attendance via Eventbrite.
