Environmental Stewardship day

On Saturday the project facilitated a workshop for farmers and landowners on Environmental Stewardship. Held at Treovis Cross farm, near Upton Cross by kind permission of Dave Taylor & Carol Horsington, the event was presented by Mary Combe of Cornwall Farming & Wildlife Advisory Group. 

The morning session explained the scheme and the procedure for applications, whilst in the afternoon David Taylor led a walk around his farm looking at the practical applications of Stewardship. Due to the beautiful spring weather the group enjoyed sitting outside for coffee and lunch, as well as the farm walk. 

If you are a farmer or smallholder and wish to find out more about how we may be able to help you, please give Jane Uglow, our Project Officer, a ring on 07814 517 089 or email her on juglow@cornwall.gov.uk.
