We’re excited to share a series of five new videos that showcase some of the farms in Cornwall that are part of the Farm Net Zero project.
Each video shares a different farm’s journey as it works to improve the environment, produce nutritious food, while also responding to climate risks, such as flooding. There is a specific focus in these videos on how the farms are engaging within their local communities, to help tackle these issues. The Farm Net Zero project includes practical advice for farmers on how to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, showcases innovation, provides robust science through soil testing and carbon footprinting, and inspires other farmers to tell their stories to consumers on the steps that they are taking to address climate change and protect soil health.
The full-length video below includes all of the following five stories. If you prefer to view each story separately, please simply click on each of the links here:
