Press Release

25 March 2014

Free meadow workshop

To commemorate the centenary of World War One, a number of wild flower meadows are being sown across Fareham.

 

So that people can learn about how to plant meadow areas in their own gardens, a free workshop is being held at Holy Trinity Church open space, West Street, Fareham, on 10 April.

 

The event will look at the modern approach to planting an urban meadow and how you can recreate this. A horticulturist and the Fareham in Bloom team will be on hand with free packets of Flanders poppy seeds given to all participants.

 

Event details:

Location: Holy Trinity Church open space, West Street, Fareham

Date: 10 April 2014

Time: 1.30pm start

Tickets: Free, just turn up at the site

Dress: Suitable for the weather with covered shoes

 

Executive Member for Leisure and Community, Councillor Connie Hockley, said:

"This workshop, and meadow planting, is part of Fareham Borough Council's 'Remember' project. In partnership with the Fareham in Bloom team, residents will see a number of events taking place across the Borough, to tie in with this year's centenary of the First World War. I'd encourage anyone with an interest in meadow planting to attend this free event."
