Event Date: 28th - 30th June 2024

Time: 10am – 4pm

Location: Wyke Farm

The 2024 Wyke Farm Bioblast weekend was held from Friday 28th June to Sunday 30th June, over two day and two nights.

Around 50 guests and experts attended this year, for the 6th edition of the event.

The land linked to Wyke Farm is now around 1000 acres and includes White Vine Farm which is just over the Somerset border, and part of which is a SSSI hay meadow.

A comprehensive survey of the land was carried out between 2006 and 2010 and the first weekend event was held in 2018. We are very keen to continue this on a regular basis to establish a public database of information about the site to inform the management of the woodland and the farmland.

Weekends like these bring together people with expertise in certain fields and others with an interest but less knowledge and experience to try and find out together what species we can add to the lists of fauna and flora so far accumulated on our land.

At the same time, we help learners build up their experience and ID skills.

The area is hugely varied and includes coniferous and deciduous woodland, hazel coppice, a lake and reedbed, withy beds, extensively grazed pastures and wildflower meadows. Thanks to that variety, the biodiversity is fantastic.

We have included some pictures below of an unforgettable weekend.

We look forward to welcoming everyone again in 2025!
