Agroforestry: Making trees work on your croft
Making trees work on your croft
Thursday 11 February, 7–8.30 pm
Wondering what trees could do for your croft? Join us for an online discussion with two crofters – new entrant Phil Knott, of Wildlife Croft on Skye, and Mike Hyatt, of Baleveolan Croft, Isle of Lismore – about their experience of crofting with trees. Ask your questions and hear about:
- Benefits of agroforestry for crofting operations - food production, wood and fuel, shelter for crops and livestock
- How trees can support biodiversity and improve soil health
- How to plan, fund, establish and manage trees on your croft
- Challenges and how to tackle them
Scottish Forestry and Woodland Trust will also be present to answer your funding questions.
FREE and open to all. Booking is required.
