New network to share practical ideas
December saw the exciting announcement of the Agriculture, Biodiversity and Climate Change Network (ABCCN).
The Network aims to showcase how other farmers and crofters are taking greater action around climate change and biodiversity by integrating practical measures into routine farm activities. It’s a partnership approach from QMS, Soil Association Scotland, SAC Consulting and NFU Scotland, and the most exciting bit is that we are hosting it on the Farming for a Better Climate website.
Once up and running, farmers and crofters will be able to share a wide range of information, including videos and photos, to detail the measures they have undertaken and the results, sharing ideas with others. We will be announcing more detail and how you can get involved via our and partners social media channels and hope to feature it in the summer newsletter. You can read the Scottish Government announcement at Showcasing agricultural climate action - gov.scot (www.gov.scot)
