About the tutor
Rachel of Broadrake Bunkbarn has been managing an area of rank grassland since 2012 on their site in the Yorkshire Dales, to restore it to an upland hay meadow. She is keen to share methods they have followed with managers and owners of other potential meadow & smaller wildflower sites, to increase botanical opportunities for our important pollinators.
