Sustainable agriculture and natural resources

PLANED set up the Pembrokeshire Sustainable Agriculture Network as a forum for farmers and landowners to discuss ideas and develop opportunities relating to sustainable agriculture.  It promotes farming practices that protect and enhance soil structure, biodiversity and landscape, adapt to climate change, recycle waste, and produce or use renewable energy.

It promotes diversification of farm enterprises, and cooperation between farmers and other elements in the county’s economy, including food, tourism and energy. Since the Network was set up in 2006, over 50 seminars, workshops or farm visits have been organised, with a focus on sustainable agricultural practices and on the advice and financial support that is available to farmers.
