Bashing balsam update!

On Wednesday I went balsam bashing at Hardcastle Crags - the balsam is quick and easy to pull up and 7 of us cleared quite an area fast, which is always satisfying!  If you'd like to have a go and help trying to rid Hardcastle Crags of this non native plant which is threatening to out compete other native plants, please help the National Trust by going along to sessions on 19th and 27th June, and 6th, 14th and 19th July, all at 18.00 - 20.00.  Wear protective clothing (nettles and brambles can sting!) and bring insect repellent. Stay for as long as you like. Meet at Midgehole Car Parking (if volunteering and you are not a member of the National Trust, there is no car parking charge.)
