Buzzing about Grassland

Kip Park Main Street, Greenock PA16 0FZ

Species rich grassland meadows are an important part of the farming landscape; providing habitats for birds, pollinators, and areas of nutritionally low fodder to manage sheep condition. How can better utilisation be made of these areas within current farming systems and what revenue is available for managing these areas through AECS? How can profit be made from these native pastures? Speakers include: Rob Havard (farmer, and Natural England). This event is open to all, and free to attend, however, places are strictly limited and will be given on a first come first served basis. Lunch is also included. The event will include a trip to Ardgowan Estate. If you’re a farmer, crofter or land manager, book your free place now: it’s open to all but it is expected that this session will fill up quickly, and booking is absolutely essential.Funding is provided through SRDP Knowledge Transfer and Innovation Fund (which is jointly funded by the Scottish Government and the European Union) with partner funding from Scottish Water and RSPB Scotland. (This event is part of a wider KTIF programme, Farming With Nature.)
