Project summary

Future Farmscapes will be working to build stronger relationships between farmers, communities, and conservation organisations throughout the South West Peak. As with all partnerships working together towards a common goal is essential for success and this project will ensure that everyone who loves the South West Peak is fully informed about on-going projects and the benefits that they can provide.

This project will be supported by a group of Farm Link Workers who are experts in communicating the ideas of conservation and relating these concepts to the folks who live and work in the area. These workers will provide an essential link between our other projects, such as Slowing the Flow and Glorious Grasslands, and local individuals or groups who may be interested in working with the Partnership.

For those projects that result in an improvement to the appearance, environment, economy, and community of the South West Peak in general the Local Farm Grant fund may be awarded. This is a great opportunity to benefit from one or more of our on-going projects and help to improve a spot in the South West Peak that you think might need a little help.

Co-operate with people at work in the countryside. For example, keep out of the way when farm animals are being gathered or moved and follow directions from the farmer.
