Sustainable Agriculture

PLPLANED have secured SDF support to further the successful work and build upon best practice demonstrated by the Pembrokeshire Sustainable Agriculture Network, which has brought farmers and organisations working in the fields of agriculture, conservation and business support, closer together for mutual benefit. The project will use networking events (on and off farm) to increase the confidence and knowledge of farming families so that larger numbers will participate in economic and environmental activities which will contribute to the sustainable development of the area. It also aims to engage and motivate farmers at grass roots level, so that they will be in a better position to access support and advice mechanisms available under programmes such as Farming Connect, thus increasing the uptake of such programmes. The project will seek to bring about an attitudinal change on the part of the farmers in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park as well as all other areas of Pembrokeshire; assisting them not only to identify opportunities but also to recognise the benefits of sustainable practices in key areas such as positive land management, renewable energy and climate change.

Project Total Cost: £33,020.00

Grant Awarded: £16,510.00
