We work with and advise others
Working with farmers
Farmers are key to creating a countryside where wildlife can once again thrive. Through sensitive management, you can expand and buffer important wildlife habitats and create links on farmland between them allowing wildlife to move and adapt to climate change. We believe there is a role for every farmer and that creating and managing healthy functioning ecosystems makes good business sense. Depending on your location we may be able to offer help with:
- Expert and impartial advice on applications for funding
- Advice on land management and habitat restoration
- Assist with the challenges of the new nitrate regulations and legislation
- Workshops on issues such as soil and nutrient management
Every year we advise on the management of over 15,000 hectares of land across our two counties. This is 6 times the amount of land that we directly manage.
Working with farmers around the Wallop Brook
We're supporting 19 farmers in West Hampshire to help wildlife on their land and become more sustainable. In total 4550 hectares of farmland in the Wallop Brook river catchment area is now being improved through measures including sowing wildflower mixes, creating farmland bird nesting habitat and developing better methods for looking after soils.
