Water Sensitive Farming

The Water Sensitive Farming (WSF) initiative is working in the Broadland and the Cam and Ely Ouse (CamEO) catchments to provide soil and water advice which will benefit farmers and the environment. Through free, confidential and flexible advice, soil and water is being kept on fields for crops to use whilst protecting our rare chalk streams in East Anglia. Bespoke grants are also available to construct features such as silt traps, bunds, ponds and wetlands.

The project is funded through the EU LIFE and WWF-UK and Coca Cola Freshwater Partnership.

We are co-hosts of the CamEO Partnership, which aims to provide a long lasting partnership approach for delivering WSF, as well as promote the positive role that businesses have to play in improving the water environment.
