Rural Roundup Bonus Content – Catherine Collins

Catherine Collins, at Croft 11, Clovullin near Fort William, shares how mentoring through FAS has given her the right start to crofting and helped her integrate into the community. Catherine tells how her long-term interest in creating species rich meadows has finally come to fruition and how mentoring helped her create a strategy for developing her own meadow and connected her with the right people in the crofting community. This podcast highlights how helpful mentoring can be for people new to crofting who don’t have an agricultural background.
