We host a range of events on nature and climate-friendly farming for farmers, growers and crofters across Scotland.
Agroforestry, good grassland and water management, peatland restoration, farming for wildlife like pollinators and wading birds, cultivating soil health: these are some of the agroecological practices that farmers use to protect and restore the environment whilst producing food. Some of Scotland's foremost nature and climate-friendly farmers host our events, and we invite expert speakers, also often farmers, to share knowledge and best practice. Come and meet others and find out what you can adopt and develop on your own farm.

Why come to one of our events?
Each event has been hugely valuable and given me lots to think about and ideas to try out. If you're a farmer of any kind, and aren't sure whether to come to one of these events, I ask you: can you really afford not to?Daye Tucker, Farmer, West Stirlingshire
