Nenescape Offers Grants & Free Training Courses to Farmers
We are working with farmers and landowners in the Nene Valley from Northampton to Peterborough to help restore and create meadow and wetland habitats as well as undertake vital infrastructural improvements to tackle diffuse pollution and aid water quality.
Training courses on environmental farm management will be offered to landowners via Moulton College. We will also gather information and memories about the farming history of the Nene Valley and help celebrate its important role in shaping the heritage of the valley.
The river and its surrounding habitats provide valuable homes to a range of wildlife such as dragonflies, birds and butterflies. Many meadows have been lost in the past, whilst remaining wetland habitats can be difficult to manage. This project will offer grant funding and specialist advice to create and restore habitats and tackle diffuse pollution.READ FULL ARTICLE
