Midsummer in the Meadows! 17 Jun 2024 Join us in the meadows for a midsummer potting-on picnic and butterfly survey, June 22nd from 10.00am

It’s midsummers day on Saturday 22 June!

Eynsham’s ancient meadow, Long Mead, is looking its most beautiful.  And the new lands along the Thames that we have leased for community restoration are already looking lovely after only a year!

Come and see them, do a bit of potting-on of the rare plants that we will plant out into the new meadows in the autumn. Learn about the wonders of the ancient meadows with a guided walk, picnic together amongst their wildflowers and wildlife - and learn how to survey for butterflies and moths, if that is your fancy!

10.00am to 1.00pm: Potting-on, sowing and plant out of NRN’s rare wildflower plants propagated by the regular Wednesday group.

1.00pm to 2.00pm: Picnic at Long Mead meadow.

2.00pm to 2.45pm: Guided walk through Long Mead’s ancient meadow.

3.00pm: Learn how to survey for butterflies. This will form part of the research of the Thames Valley Wildflower Meadow Restoration Project, which is studying the invertebrates in newly-created meadows.

Meet at Long Mead Barn, Oxford Road, OX29 4DU (Opposite Talbot Inn)
