Lanarkshire Women In Agriculture: Peatland Restoration at Tardoes


Book

David and Cora Cooper farm over 5000ha on the hills of East Ayrshire.  Coming to the farm in 2004 David set out to run a low input sheep system whilst systematically improving the ground previously scarred by Open Cast mining. Now, along with his wife Cora, they have undergone an ambitious programme of peatland restoration in order to improve their natural assets, boosting biodiversity, improving carbon storage and improving their farming operation. Join us at 12.30 at The Hub in Muirkirk for lunch where we will hear from Cora and Stephen Inglis (RSPB) who have both been heavily involved in this project. We will then travel to the farm to see the results of the work and the benefits this project has had for the natural environment and the business.
