Event description

Description

Callander with farm visit and equipment demonstration

Second in a series of practical events looking at the benefits of peatland restoration for upland farms.

Come and find out what funding is available and how restoring peatlands can reduce black loss, make the least accessible areas of the hill more productive, reduce flooding, retain water in dry weather and improve soil.

Farming and Conservation advisor Sandra Stewart will lead a farm visit to Braeleny Farm, where farmer David Higginson has installed 100 peat dams with an Agri-Environment Climate Scheme (AECS) grant. The event will include a demonstration of a digger creating a peat dam.

Speakers are from ScotFWAG, IUCN UK Peatland Programme and SNH Peatland Action.

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, RSPB Scotland and The Prince of Wales’s Charitable Foundation. (This event is part of a wider KTIF programme, Farming With Nature.)
