    Dear AVS. I Came across this article whilst looking for material on hospital Meadows. It is the best overview i have found and read so far. Full of excellent material to draw on. I farm Rare Breed sheep on organic principles and am looking for plants to support parasite prevention in the High Weald of Sussex and also a better understanding of the virtues of our native species here.
    If anyone knows more about medieval hospital meadows I would love to hear from them. Thank you !!!! Julia Desch
