Promoting sustainable farming techniques
The DS Smith Charitable Foundation contributed funding towards the 2022 Farm Resilience Programme in Wales.
This included a workshop entitled ‘Your farm and the environment’ which was
delivered to 19 farm businesses.
Participants were keen to adopt the sustainable farming techniques taught, such as rotational grazing to allow grass to grow larger roots or creating herbal leys, planting multi-species to improve animal and soil health.
I believe that farmers hold the key to reversing some of the negative impacts of food production and species decline. This engagement with farmers and land managers is so valuable, as they are part of the solution.
