Back by popular demand, a second rush management workshop has been arranged at the RSPB reserve at Geltsdale. It will be run by Ian Cairns who has spent many years working for SAC and is providing this workshop for FREE.
Under discussion will be different ways of managing rush: cutting, weed-wiping, strimming etc. Plus, other ways of managing difficult weedy species such as docks, thistles, nettles, ragwort. This will be in the context of both organic and non-organic farming methods and with reference to managing for wildlife.
