The Gaia Trust's application for a new Countryside Stewardship Agreement at Treraven has been approved and begins on January 1st 2020.
Matt Edworthy, the Gaia Trust's Director says "we are delighted with this news and can begin to implement our plans which will allow us to improve our soils, create more valuable wildlife habitat and continue delivering access and education for the public, whilst still productively farming".
Key elements of he Agreement are grass and herb rich leys that improve soil condition and pasture habitat for wildlife, field corners taken out of management, low input grasslands and leaving rye grass to seed as over wintering food for birds. We will continue our hedge management, but also lay some stretches and repair some of the traditional stone faced hedge banks.
