About

About Leader's landscape training:

Landscape is our support system without which we could not exist.

Everyone depends on landscape for food, water, fuel and clean air.

A beautiful and diverse landscape with a wealth of wildlife and human history inspires and enriches our lives and provides a ‘natural health service’ for mind and body. But our fragile landscapes are under threat as never before, not least from climate change, and our challenge is to understand, support and enhance them.

Leader’s Landscape Training is aimed at outdoor practitioners to help deepen your understanding of Cumbria’s landscapes and enable you to pass on your new-found knowledge to those with whom you work.

Workshop detail:

Farming Landscape - how farmers shape the landscape then and now

Pauline is a hill sheep farmer in the Lorton Valley with 450 Herdwick sheep. She will guide us around her farm as we discuss the traditional farming system, how and when the present landscape was created and how farmers are adapting to new environmental schemes. We’ll discuss balancing farming with improving the natural environment, challenges and ways to achieve optimum outcomes.
