Memories Day – Farming & Agriculture

Fri 15th Feb 2019 - 10:30 - 12:30

Special Events

Come and enjoy two fascinating FREE talks, starting at 10.30am.

Richard Moyse is Project Manager at Ranscombe Farm Reserve, a working arable and livestock farm and one of the UK’s most important sites for cornfield wildflowers. Naturalist and botanist Richard will talk about cornfield wildflowers in the rural landscape, their history and cultural significance, and how they’ve declined over the last 150 years.

Then Carol Partridge, corn dolly maker, will talk about the history and meaning behind these historic totems and the regional differences in their shape and form.

If you worked in agriculture on a farm, or on fruit or vegetable production in the Garden of England we’d love to hear about your experiences in the industry. Please come along and share your memories and help us record them after you’ve enjoyed the talks!
