In the second of our series of films from the Lake District, local farm facilitator Danny Teasdale took us to meet Jasmine Holliday. Jasmine is a Farming Officer in the Lake District National Park and she works on the Farming in Protected Landscapes programme. In this video, Jasmine talks about the ambitions of the programme, which type of projects can get funding, and what works best in the Lake District National Park.
Kate is a policy adviser in the Farming in Protected Landscapes programme team.
The team works closely with the Protected Landscapes delivering the programme to make sure that the programme is delivering well on the ground.
Kate's work includes leading on thinking about what we can learn from the programme to help inform the other work we have going on across the programme, including the environmental land management schemes.
I’m pleased to say that following feedback, we are moving to a rolling application window for the rest of the Farming in Protected Landscapes programme.
You might remember that the Farming in Protected Landscapes programme opened for applications in July. In August, we shared a video made by some of our Protected Landscape colleagues about the sorts of projects that were eligible for funding. In this post, I’d like to share some examples of the things land managers and farmers are doing with their funding.
