About the event
Could you make better use of spring water on your farm?
Join us on a tour of Creeve Cottage Farm to see how spring water can be captured to grow native wetland plants using practices to maintain growth over the winter months, and help contribute to better water management on the farm.
The Water Innovation Network have been trialling low cost nature-based solutions to capture and clean dirty water on farms, and provide farmers with harvestable crops. Whilst dirty water is not an issue on Creeve Cottage Farm, there is a significant volume of spring water which has been utilised to grow native wetland plants and trees in spring-fed beds. This spring-fed nursery has been developed to help produce plants for use in nature-based systems on other farms.
