The Nature Friendly Farming Network is led by farmers across the UK with a passion for sustainable farming and nature. Their aim is to unite farmers across the UK who have a sustainable outlook, secure positive changes in policy, including how farming is supported by the public, and bring together farmers to learn from one another.
What we love about it:
Any food citizenship action starts by connecting people. Providing a platform to do so ensures resources are shared more easily and quickly, strengthening the bonds between like-minded people and empowering them to take positive action.

Update from our weekly checks of Swallows nests on three WOFBP farms. 12 active nests of which 3 contain eggs and 9 have young. A further two have successfully fledged young and two failed. Despite a late start the pairs that have returned appear to be doing well. https://t.co/Ed5MBdHRiY

#Farmers already know multiple reasons why #agroforestry is a good idea ( #shelter, crop diversity, #biodiversity) so it's great to spread the word to all
