I had a day in Liverpool yesterday with Richard Scott from Landlife that is based at The National Wildflower Centre in Liverpool. We met at the Wildflower Centre where he showed me around and then we went on a day of travelling all over Liverpool and surrounding area to see meadows in both urban and rural settings.
We chatted lots about plants, meadows creation, attitudes to newly created habitats and policy that can effect the management and decisions of what you can do with pockets of land. It was a really great day and it has inspired me on about my blue and yellow meadows for Yorkshire Sculpture Park.
