Becky Willson


Becky is the project manager for the Farm Carbon Cutting Toolkit, a farmer-led organisation providing tools and resources focusing on reducing greenhouse gas emissions, improving soil health and carbon sequestration and promoting business resilience for farmers.  Becky also works for the Rural Business School at Duchy College as a research leader, and is currently working on manure management through developing the Farm Crap App, and the Soil Carbon Project, which is working on over 70 farms across England developing ways to measure and understand carbon sequestration on-farm and the impact of soil carbon on the whole farm carbon footprint.
Becky also co-ordinates the Soil Farmer of the Year awards, which reward farmers who are passionate about soil health, and are pioneering new methods of farming that put soil health at the centre of their business management. She is also a Nuffield scholar, looking at how to better communicate carbon and climate change to inspire engagement. Although she has now fully crossed the boundary from dairy farmer into running FCCT, at home in Devon she runs a thriving community farm on a National Trust estate.
