Landowner Workshops

Farmers and other landowners are vital to the success of Our Stour.

That’s why we are delivering a programme of events for landowners and land managers focused on best practice for ‘river-friendly farming’ – reducing environmental impacts on watercourses through Catchment Sensitive Farming and wildlife friendly land management.

The workshops raise awareness and encourage land management that will lead to improved condition of rivers across the catchment. Workshops will cover topics such as: protecting the water environment, pollution control, silt management, use of fertilisers, land management techniques (e.g. buffer strips), controlling invasive species etc.

The dates for the winter 2019/202 programme will be announced shortly. To get an email update about the workshops, contact Will Hirstle, the Project Co-ordinator: will.hirstle@kent.gov.uk
