The most recent workshop was held on Wednesday 2nd August at West Week Farm titled 'Enhancing Biodiversity and Making Economic use of Woodland'. This proved to be a very valuable event for the 21 attendees who learned how to both help wildlife, and get some economic returns. The next workshop is a hedge-laying event on 6th October, so contact us if you wish to attend.
The Facilitation Fund has already held two workshops to help famers apply for Mid-Tier Countryside Stewardship. Roland Stonex from FWAG has been very positive, knowledgeable and helpful to potential applicants.
A final mid-tier workshop will be on September 6th at High Bickington Community Centre. We have potentially 4 members applying for the scheme this year and we are hopeful that their applications will be successful.
