3.  25 March Townhead Court : Craven Conservation Group Illustrated
Talk by Dr Sharon Parr of “The Burren Farm Conservation Programme” 7.30pm.

I went to visit Sharon a few years ago and she showed me part of the
Burren.

David Tayler and some farmers from Craven went to visit the project
last November.  They even visited “Father Ted’s House” and farm.

It will be interesting to hear about the farming problems and
solutions on the Irish limestone pavement and grassland, compared to
what we have here. Sharon has visited the Settle area briefly too –
and was fascinated by the  hazel in the Woods at Oxenber.

Do make an effort to come – Sharon is coming all the way from Ireland
(via Cheshire,) to give this talk.
