Training Course Recommendations

Natural England Hedgerow Management Event, Mark Cross, Sussex

"I found the whole day most instructive and satisfying and hope I have absorbed some of the wealth of information and expertise passed on by Nigel Adams. The farm visit was excellent, being both an exercise in hedgerows and a history lesson at the same time"
Farmer Mr R Sargent

"A very informative talk was given by Nigel Adams at an event for farmers hosted by Essex Wildlife Trust and the RSPB. We were shown examples of hedgerows, and these were related to a lifecycle model with a prescription for managment. All the practical considerations, including cost of maintenance were considered. Nigel was very authoratitive and knowledgeable - our landowners were most impressed"
