Measuring Progress: Carbon and Biodiversity auditing in Northern Ireland

Overview

Meet fellow NFFN members and learn about our recent Carbon & Biodiversity auditing project as part of Nature Friendly Farming Week.

Details

Measuring progress will be crucial in moving towards nature- and climate-friendly farming. Up to date data and information will be important in helping all farmers reduce emissions, restore biodiversity and deliver benefits to their business.

As part of our first ever annual Nature Friendly Farming Week, we are hosting an event to share the results of our DAERA-funded Biodiversity and Carbon auditing project, which delivered carbon and biodiversity audits to 35 farms in Northern Ireland. This will be an opportunity to share knowledge on the opportunities and challenges of using audits to help farmers plan for the future.

The meeting will take place on project participant and nature-friendly farmer Bronagh O’Kane’s farm. Bronagh runs a suckler farm with a small flock of sheep and some rare breed pigs, and is also a self-proclaimed soil biome geek. Bronagh is trying to regenerate her soils, change to native breeds, lower inputs and emissions, and hopefully see an increase in wildlife over time.
