How we look after the land and grow food

Our agricultural policies have supported rising food production but brought other problems – like greenhouse gas emissions, loss of soil fertility and loss of biodiversity. This is not sustainable. Over half our wildlife species are showing change and decline, and natural habitats have become too fragmented to support wildlife effectively.  The Land & Biodiversity Group is focused on learning what we can from studies already done in order to make positive changes for the better in Shropshire.  Our first report, on Woodlands, can be accessed by clicking the link below:
