This event is part of Stroud Nature 2017 and other organisations are involved.

Mark Russell, the owner of the farm invites you to join him and other member organisations and individuals from the Stroud Forum in an exploration of the farm’s habitats and wildlife, including meadow, orchard, garden and pond.

9:30 – 11:00 We are opening up moth traps that were set the night before. We had 100 different species last year.

10:00 Insect art activities with Steve Roberts of Stroud Nature.

10:30 start and 11:30 start  Get down among the grasses and identify the different species with help from Stroud Wildlife Survey Group.

11:00 Conversations with nature: creating a space within ourselves in which we allow nature to speak.

12:00 Identify today’s butterflies with an expert, walk the land and discuss how to help the different species.

2:00 Orchard bounty – planning and maintaining for produce and nature. The local community have planted 90 trees to provide fruit options over a long season (walk and talk).

Tea, coffee and cakes all day, in aid of charity. You are welcome to bring a picnic.

Yew Tree Farm is in Thrupp directly opposite the top of Brewery Lane – see Ordnance Survey map below. There is no parking at the farm and street parking may be difficult so the best way to get there is to park either in the layby on the A419 (marked with a green L on the OS map) or at Stroud Brewery (red B on the map).

The postcode shown on the Google map is on the A419 near the bottom of Brewery Lane.
