Local residents came together in Armley to take part in a seedbombing exercise to create a wildflower meadow.
Sunday’s event was run at Hill Top, near the Travellers Rest pub, by volunteers at the Armley Common Right Trust and conservation volunteers from TCV Hollybush as part of the TCV’s Big Green Weekend programme.
The aim was to bring the community together and improve the area for next spring.
