 MEADOW and hedge creation feature in two events to be run as part of the Forgotten Landscape project.

Volunteers can help make a small wildflower meadow in Olveston on Sunday, March 4, when planting will take place from 10am-11.30am on Aust Road, near the junction with Elberton Road.

All are welcome to take part and can borrow tools if they can’t take their own along.

The event is being run in conjunction with Olveston Parish Council and refreshments will be provided.  

The following weekend will see Julian Smith teaching the local Berkeley style of hedge laying during a two-day course on March 10 and 11.

Taking place in Rockhampton, the course is suitable for adults with little or no experience of hedge laying. All tools will be supplied and although free, places must be booked.

The Forgotten Landscape natural and cultural heritage project aims to conserve and improve the lower Severn Vale levels.
