Farmers and land managers can apply to the Scottish Government’s Agri-Environment Climate Scheme for funding to carry out projects that will help our environment.
I encourage anyone involved in land management to consider applying to this scheme as it promotes practices that will enhance our environment. Measures taken now to protect our natural habitats and reduce carbon emissions through carbon capture will help mitigate climate change and to develop a range of environmentally friendly farming methods. These may well also be cost saving for the framer or group involved, both in the short and longer term.
The deadline for applications is 13 April, with 31 May for collaborative projects which involve 5 or more businesses.
