FWAG SouthWest delivers the Campaign for the Farmed Environment (CFE) across the South West. The Campaign encourages farmers and land managers to protect and enhance the environmental value of farmland, through environmental measures that sit alongside productive agriculture.
Hills to Levels is a holistic catchment management approach across catchments in Somerset, aiming to ‘slow the flow’ to reduce flood risk, reduce erosion, improve water quality, deliver wider environmental benefits and increase resilience on the floodplain. The idea is that a lot of small-scale interventions will have an effect at the large catchment scale with the motto that ‘every field, every farm, every stream has its part to play in flooding and water quality’.
Water is something we tend to take for granted. This Guide, which has been produced with support from Defra and the Catchment Based Approach, aims to help you understand the importance of the water in your local environment.
At FWAG we are helping farmers to practically manage their land, in order to benefit their business, but also with the future of their land and its wildlife in mind.
