A summer weekend devoted to our native British wild flowers. Excursions will take us up on the Downs (!) where the chalk grassland includes a huge number of attractive flowers, among them lots of orchids. We will also include waterside and hay-meadow habitats. Patrick will give us aids to identification in the field and in illustrated talks at Shaw. Some of the medicinal uses and folklore connected to the plants will be discussed. 
Based at Lower Shaw Farm with excellent organic, vegetarian food and even the chance to try the wood-fired sauna!
