Watch our latest SRDP on Film video to find out about a Scottish tea growing project.

In our Tea Gardens of Scotland film you can learn how a group of nine tea growers in Angus, Perthshire and Fife are working together to grow tea from seed. The cooperation project was funded by Angus LEADER, Rural Perth & Kinross LEADER and Fife LEADER.

Every Thursday throughout the autumn we'll be releasing a short film focussing on an inspiring project funded by the Scottish Rural Development Programme as part of our SRDP on Film series.

SRDP on Film aims to highlight case studies that promote and inspire applications for SRDP funding, with a focus on priorities such as farm diversification, cooperation, innovation, new entrants to farming and land management.

Future films will feature diverse enterprises such as as alpaca trekking, an innovative programme to make lamb rearing more efficient and a cooperation project that connects Scotland with the rest of Europe through folk song.

You can watch the Tea Gardens of Scotland film below, on Vimeo or on our Facebook page.
