Hedgerow Safari

Safari Tent

Join a practical walkabout session to view hedgerows near the Groundswell site; we will discuss practical solutions for management to ensure they can deliver multiple benefits on your farm. Hedgerows support more sustainable and productive agricultural landscapes. They are crucial in supporting farmland biodiversity, they sequester carbon in their biomass and soil, and can provide flood risk alleviation. We will look at soil health beneath hedgerows compared to that in adjacent fields to discuss the climate change mitigation and flood alleviation role that hedges can provide, as well as discussing how to implement a management cycle that works for you.
