Farming for biodiversity

All day on Saturday 3 April

Times shown are in GMT (UTC +0) up to the 27th March. For events on or after 28th March times are in BST (UTC +1).

The RSPB purchased Hope Farm 20 years ago, to identify and demonstrate how to farm profitably while addressing the loss of farmland wildlife. Farm manager Georgie Bray explains how their efforts have since seen the recovery and return of declining farmland populations and a 400% increase in butterflies. Now attention is turning to ways of maintaining production and biodiversity in the face of escalating climate change. 


Head over to the Earth Optimism website to watch this talk:


Do you have questions for Georgie? If so, make sure to come along to the live Q&A session at 2pm on Saturday 3 April, chaired by Tony Juniper, where Georgie will be answering your questions about how to make space for nature alongside Georgina Mayhew (who spoke about 'Restoring landscapes for life').


This is part of the Making Space for Nature speaker series - one of the sessions in Earth Optimism's Stories of Hope programme. Why not search for 'Earth Optimism' to find out what else is on?
