To support farmers and land managers in the East Midlands to prepare for severe weather and climate change, Climate East Midlands has helped to organise and deliver a series of six half-day Soil Management workshops, held on farms in Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and Leicestershire in August 2013. The workshops were delivered in partnership with the Farming Advice Service and the Environment Agency (Midlands). The main draw at each workshop was a soil expert who gave a talk and answered questions around at least one soil pit at each farm.
