About the Event
Farming is one of the few industries that has the potential to sequester more carbon than it produces. But it's complex! Join us and get practical advice on how to measure and improve your carbon management and learn more about carbon credits and trading.
Becky Willson from Farm Carbon Toolkit and Duchy College will explore carbon and greenhouse gasses and their role in agriculture. Bring your laptop and have a go at producing a carbon calculation for your land using the Farm Carbon Toolkit, guided by Becky. Learn how to interpret the data and what to do next to improve your footprint.
Enjoy a farm walk and see what we are doing at FarmED to build soil health, reduce emissions and increase sequestration above and below ground. We’ll discuss the data that we are collecting.
Refreshments and a delicious and nutritious lunch from the FarmED cafe are included in the ticket price.
Who Is The Event For?
If you are interested in the carbon debate and potential farming solution this event is for you. This event is ideal for farmers, landowners and managers, consultants, advisors, researchers and students.
Becky Willson works with farmers, estates, supply chains and other businesses to help understand how to integrate soil health into carbon accounting systems. A passionate advocate for highlighting the economic benefits of sustainable farming, Becky currently divides her time between working for Farm Carbon Toolkit and the Duchy College Rural Business School as a technical specialist in resource management. In 2016, Becky was awarded a Nuffield Scholarship to study further how to communicate carbon reduction schemes to farmers, which has fed into her work at FCT and Duchy College.
