Understanding the Farming Lingo and landscape

'Lingo and landscape' COURSE COSTS

£50 per person, including lunch and drinks.

Ever wondered what's going on over the hedge? Why some fields are bare and others are lushly green? What might be growing and why? What's meant by carbon sequestration, bulling, hogget and ley? Where have all the bogs gone? And does it matter? Increasingly the public wants to know about farming and rightly so. Farmers grow food and are responsible for one of our greatest assets – land. This one day course gives a lively and enriching introduction to farming issues: environmental, economic, political, social and ethical. We will walk, observe and talk about different farming practises and their respective impacts enabling participants to become more 'literate' on landscape, lingo and the burning issues.
