CLA South West: Natural Capital Farm Walk

This event is sold out

Water, air, soil and biodiversity are the key assets that make up our natural capital. They provide us with benefits in the form of ecosystem services, such as; food, timber, water filtration and carbon sequestration. As we move towards a new future outside of the European Union, policy is shifting to reward land managers for delivering environmental public goods.

Join us for a farm walk at Moor Wood Estate, who are undergoing the transition from commercial farming to a model that they describe as ‘farming with nature’. As the whole farm is put into Countryside Stewardship, understand how conservation as a crop can work. See the practical ways in which they are unlocking payments for ecosystem services including; biodiversity net gain and carbon offsetting. We will explore the estate with a walk encompassing ancient woodland, calcareous grassland and a network of wild bird seed and pollen and nectar mixes. 

The farm walk will also cover:

•            Policy changes and the ELM scheme

•            Opportunities for land managers

•            Payments for ecosystem services and the Natural Capital Grade (NCG)

We will hear from:

•            Tom Heathcote, Knight Frank

•            Alex Robinson, Moor Wood Estate and Nature Capital
