The Sustainable Farming in Cambridgeshire online film premiere and live discussion, run by Carbon Neutral Cambridge, will include discussions with five local farmers from the Cambridgeshire region on how they are adapting their farming practices to cut carbon and encourage biodiversity.

Katie Hilton, Associate, Cheffins, says: “As the farming community faces continued pressure to play their part in climate change, this event will help to provide real and practical solutions to improving soil health and protecting against biodiversity loss. With the future of government funding weighted heavily in favour of environmental gains, it will be important for farmers to look into how they fit these types of schemes into their business plans and this event will be a good place to start.”

The event will be chaired by the Commissioner of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Independent Commission on Climate Change and Chairman of G’s Fresh, John Shropshire OBE, who will also give an update on the new Environmental Land Management Scheme. The event will also show the premiere of the Carbon Neutral Cambridge film, From the Ground Up, which will feature five Cambridgeshire farmers at different stages of their biodiversity and soil health journey. This will be followed by a live Q&A session with the featured farmers and a few words from Chair of the Climate Change and Environment Committee at South Cambridgeshire District Council, Pippa Heylings, who will provide information on local policy supporting sustainable farming.

The event will take place on 26th February 2021 from 9am – 10.30am and is free of charge.
