Meadow Connections 2017...

The first Meadow Connections gathering took place between the 7th and 9th July 2017 on the beautiful Lower Winskill Farm near Settle in North Yorkshire. The idea of the weekend was to create opportunities for people to engage with and understand the increasingly rare habitats of upland hay meadows through a series of workshops on art, craft, botany, beekeeping, herbal medicine, pottery and scything. The weekend was also a celebration of our region's food with delicious homemade culinary delights making full use of local produce.

The farm was also host to the Northern Scythe Championships which took place on the Sunday where scythesmen and women from all over the United Kingdom competed against each other for the title of "Northern Scythe Champion".

We hope you will be able to join us in 2018 for more Meadow Connections magic.

Many thanks indeed to Tony Crossland and his excellent photography
