Each year FWAG East holds a number of informative local workshops, talks and farm walks for farmers and land managers with topics ranging from resource protection to establishing successful conservation measures. At the events, our advisers are readily available to chat one-to-one and offer advice. And there’s usually some welcome refreshment on offer to boot!
