Make your verge a wildflower meadow!

Some people are discouraging Council/Amey workmen from mowing the verge and spraying the verge outside their house with Glyphosate, by putting up signs like this.

The Ecologist says “With coronavirus putting pressure on council services and causing staff shortages, non-essential activities such as spring mowing could fall by the wayside.” Unfortunately here in Sheffield spraying seems to be more frequent with many residents complaining their street/verge has been sprayed with poison.

To make your own sign print this graphic (it wont use too much of your printer ink) and then colour it in with felt tips.
or here is a ready made one that can be colour printed.

Please send pictures of your Glyphosate Free Mini Meadow and I will share them here.
