Water Friendly Farming, Soil Health, Natural Capital and Ecosystems Services

Date: Tuesday 23 July, 7.15-9.30pm, Eden Rivers Trust office, Newton Rigg College, Penrith CA11 0AH

Host: River Petteril Facilitation Fund

Guest speaker: Jim Egan, Kings Seeds

In this meeting we will cover how farming can positively impact on soil and water health, leading to better natural capital values and improved ecosystem services.

Jim Egan, who works with Nestle in our neighbouring catchment (and has worked with the Game and Wildlife Conservation Trust for many years and is involved at national policy level), will give an informative talk on all aspects of his work with farmers and managers and how we can all find areas on our farms to benefit wildlife, conserve and protect resources and create habitats.

Group members should please arrive at 7.15 pm for a light buffet supper and refreshments, to be followed by the meeting. Guests are welcome.

For catering purposes, please contact Andy Dyer or leave him a message at our office (01768 866788) by 5pm on Friday, 19 July, if you are able to attend the meeting.
