Our first event exploring the role of land in climate change and sustainability, using practical examples of innovation at Wimpole Home Farm
Join us for an exclusive tour of the in-hand farm at Wimpole Estate, where the National Trust is combining traditional and innovating agricultural practices to demonstrate economically and environmentally sustainable land management.
Wimpole Home Farm is the National Trust’s in-hand 1,500 acre organic farm. The purpose of the farm is to understand, research and demonstrate sustainable land management to a wide range of audiences, from tenant farmers of the National Trust to our 6 million members. At this event, Callum Weir, the farm manager of Wimpole, will explain how the farm balances its three core objectives: productivity, promoting biodiversity and mitigating the effects of climate change. This will involve a farm walk, as well as a presentation about how the National Trust is involved in an Interreg project called FABulous Farmers which is investigating the most effective ways to influence farmers to adopt sustainable land management practices.
The Crown Estate: addressing soil health and the role of careful soil management both as a solution to and in response to climate change.
The RSPB: working to deliver nature-friendly farming, particularly at Hope Farm, and to support nature-based solutions to climate change that also deliver biodiversity and other environmental benefits.
Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
The normal cancellation fee of £60 applies for any one who does not turn up on the day. If you are a non-member but are interested in attending then please contact Hannah Mann on firstname.lastname@example.org
