Farming for Nature are delighted to run another season of farm walks this year with many of their wonderful ambassador farmers.
These farm walks are an opportunity for Farming for Nature farmers to showcase their contribution to nature and good farming practices on their land. They are a great opportunity to meet likeminded farmers and to gain an insight into the creative and inspiring ways that farmers are working to incorporate, protect and enhance nature on their land. There is a great diversity of ambassador farmers set to host farm walks this year covering a range of farming systems from tillage to dairy, forestry to market gardening, mixed stock to high nature value farming, from conservation agriculture to productive smallholdings, and much more.
There is a provisional farm walk schedule for May – October 2022 which you can see on the Farming for Nature website here. The earlier farm walks are now open for bookings, and bookings will continue to be opened on a phased basis throughout the year. However, you can now sign up for the waiting list in order to be notified when a specific walk is open for bookings. Keep an eye on Farming for Nature social media/website to see possible updates or changes to this schedule as time progresses. Lucy Bowler, Programme Officer with Farming for Nature said “We are delighted to showcase the wide range of farming systems and land types in Ireland. We feel these farm walks are a great way to exchange ideas, experiences and practical tips for farming alongside nature. The walks are also a wonderful opportunity to see first-hand from farmers what works and what doesn’t when it comes to supporting nature on farms.”
The walks cost €10 to attend. This is a not-for-profit initiative and all monies received will be circulated back into the farming community.
