Soil Carbon Project February 19 events

The report and the write up of the recent farmer events that were held at the end of the first year of the project.

 

Two events were held that followed the same format, one in Cornwall on the 13th February, and the second in Stoneleigh on the 14th. Both were an opportunity for farmers invovled in the project to come along and discuss the progress and results from year 1 and to feed into the discussons for year 2.
