My experiment

Simon, Wild Meadows, Frome
Simon has been restoring Wild Meadows for three years. By planting trees, digging a lake and sowing meadows, he is showing how quickly wildlife like otters, badgers and tawny owls can return, and how wild places can emerge: for Simon, the area is a living breathing Petri dish. It's one big, wild experiment that he shares with the world over the internet, and that he enjoys with his family, too.
