About the Event
About the Event
Farming is one of the few industries that has the potential to sequester more carbon than it produces. But it's complex! Join this day and get practical advice on how to measure and improve your carbon management and learn more about carbon credits and trading.
Kate Henderson and the FarmED team will facilitate the day and summarise the range of carbon calculators currently on the market. Discuss which carbon calculators are suitable for different situations.
Becky Willson from Farm Carbon Toolkit and Duchy College will explore carbon and greenhouse gasses and their role in agriculture. Bring your laptop and have a go at producing a carbon calculation for your land using the Farm Carbon Toolkit, guided by Becky. Learn how to interpret the data and what to do next to improve your footprint.
Take a farm walk and see what we are doing at FarmED to build soil health, reduce emissions and increase sequestration above and below ground. Discuss the data that we are collecting.
Tim Field from the North East Cotswolds Farmer Cluster and Carbon Quester will explore some of the cluster baselining results and the Rothamsted Research institutes work to model uplift from different interventions. Can we come together to trade?
Refreshments and a delicious and nutritious lunch from the FarmED cafe are included in the ticket price.
