It has been a very busy week for workshops with good attendances despite the sunny weather.  On Monday night, Carol organised a farm diversification workshop on Zoom with John Atkinson and Maria Benjamin from Nibthwaite Grange Farm, Daniel Bennett of Hillsgreen Consultancy and a planning officer from the Yorkshire Dales National Park.  On Wednesday evening, Claire Foster organised a meeting on hay meadow species ID near Conistone in Wharfedale hosted by Richard and Dan Stockdale and we also had a workshop for the next generation of Lake District farmers at Colin Bateman’s farm near Docker looking at how he has implemented rotational grazing and his journey towards regenerative farming.  All have been well attended with particular thanks to the host farmers.
