Spotlight on.... Waveney Water & Woodland Farm Cluster

Our Catchment Project Officer is facilitating a landscape-scale farm cluster project, already encompassing 12 farms and over 2,000 hectares of farmland. The overarching priorities of the group are to improve water quality and to protect and enhance woodlands throughout the Waveney catchment.

A drive to work together forms the core of this group, where farmers are building long-lasting relationships, sharing experiences, and learning from each other about best farming practices and conservation successes. The group strives to reduce pollution from nutrients, pesticides and sediment run-off in the Waveney, as well as improve woodland biodiversity and connectivity. Members receive advice and support with agri-environment schemes and project delivery, as well as regular information and training in topics of interest.

If you are a farmer or landowner and interested in joining or learning more about this group, please contact Emily Winter at or on 07788 419475.

Volunteering with RWT

Our local groups are run by dedicated volunteers who look after our nature reserves and community spaces. They are currently seeking new volunteers to join workparties.
