Scything a meadowIn partnership with Sustrans, the volunteers had the opportunity to be involved in a scything workshop at Devon Meadow, near the Ochils Mountain Rescue base at Fishcross.

The workshop provided training in the maintenance and use of scythes which volunteers enjoyed tremendously. Volunteers were also trained in the requirement for a high level of management on perennial meadows – as well as an introduction to common wildflowers species.

During the task day 450m2 of vegetation was cleared from the meadow.
