This is Roger Hawkins, who is doing such fantastic volunteering work in Warren Farm. He is there from mid April, through to the end of October, pulling out Goldenrod. Now that the meadow has been cut, Roger is out raking the grass and adding it to the enormous piles of grass on the edge of the meadow.
As this is chalk grassland, it needs to be nutrient thin ground We therefore do not want the grass composting down, but remove it to the side of the meadow.
Please come and say hello to Roger and Mike Constable and encourage your dogs not to bark at them, they are doing an incredible job.
