Event description

Description

Muddled by your moorland management plan? Wondering about wader grazed grassland? Or just pure scunnered by species rich grassland? Are you trying to get to grips with AECS, or wondering how managing your land differently could impact production?

This event will look at ‘win-win’ situations, where agri-environmental management can benefit both wildlife and production. We will also spend time exploring some of the practicalities and challenges associated with applying for and managing land under an AECS scheme. Bring your draft plans along on the day for discussion with our experts from the newly relaunched ScotFWAG.

Tea, coffee and biscuits will be available.

If you’re a farmer, crofter or land manager, book your free place now: it’s open to all but we’re expecting this session to fill up quickly, and booking is absolutely essential. Use this online form, or if you prefer you can call Jane on 0131 666 2474, or email jdingwall@soilassociation.org. We'll give you exact venue details when you book.

If you aren't a farmer, crofter or landmanager, your place will be charged at £40 + VAT - please call Jane on 0131 666 2474, or email jdingwall@soilassociation.org to arrange with us rather than using this online form.

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 and Farm Advisory Service. (This event is part of a wider KTIF programme, Farming With Nature.)
