Online Event

Soil Association

Wondering what trees could do for your croft? Join the Soil Association for an online discussion with two crofters – new entrant Phil Knott, of Wildlife Croft on Skye, and Mike Hyatt, of Baleveolan Croft, Isle of Lismore – about their experience of crofting with trees. Ask your questions and hear about:

  • Benefits of agroforestry for crofting operations - food production, wood and fuel, shelter for crops and livestock
  • How trees can support biodiversity and improve soil health
  • How to plan, fund, establish and manage trees on your croft
  • Challenges and how to tackle them

Scottish Forestry and Woodland Trust will also be present to answer your funding questions.

FREE and open to all. Booking is required.

Run by Soil Association Scotland with funding from the SRDP Knowledge Transfer and Innovation Fund (Scottish Government/European Union), with partner funding from Scottish Forestry and Woodland Trust Scotland.
