Natural flood management walk
Hosted by the Lune Rivers Trust and FoodFutures
This natural flood management walk will show a range of techniques that can be used to slow the flow. On Backsbottom farm we have set up a trail showing restoring blanket bog, contour swales, check dams, in river training, attenuation ponds, contour grassland aeration and the use of liquid biofertilizer to encourage good soil structure. This will be a good opportunity to discuss flood management.
THIS WALK WILL NEED TO BE BOOKED SEPARATELY TO RESERVE A SPACE. FURTHER INFORMATION WILL BE CIRCULATED TO REGISTERED PARTICIPANTS.
