RADA’s Nicola and Rachel held a Campaign for the Farmed Environment (CFE) funded event on the 8th March which was attended by 25 farmers and landowners. The event is the first in a series of FREE Smart Margins events which will look at how to best use your boundaries, buffer strips and hedges to enhance wild life and pollinators on your farm.
There were presentations from Hedgelink UK, Woodland Trust, Natural England and the Campaign for the Farmed Environmenton on topics such as hedgerow restoration, wood fuel and boundary grants. A guided tour kindly provided by Marbury Park rangers showed attendees examples of best practice hedges and boundaries.
