Research farm opens its gates for Climate Week

Visitors to The James Hutton Institute’s Glensaugh Climate-Positive Farming Initiative.

THE James Hutton Institute is opening the site of its Climate-Positive Farming Initiative to the public later this month (March 21-22) as part of Climate Week North East.

Visitors to the Initiative, at the Hutton’s Glensaugh research farm, will be taken on a free, 90-minute, 3 km-long guided walk around the farm to learn about some of the Hutton’s climate-positive research, including peatland restoration, increasing the diversity of grasslands, integrating trees on the farm, natural flood management and much more.

Following the walk at the farm, just southeast of Cairn o’ Mount near Fettercairn, information will also be provided about the institute’s other activities, including its £6 million HydroGlen green hydrogen project at Glensaugh, through indoor displays over coffee and tea.

Places are limited, so visitors are encouraged to book on one of the four Climate Positive Farming – Taster Day walks, taking place at 10am and 2pm on March 21 and 22, in advance via Eventbrite.

The walk will include some steep trails. Visitors are encouraged to bring waterproofs, warm clothing and sturdy footwear.

Climate Week North East, running from March 24 to April 2, is organised by North East Scotland Climate Action Network (NESCAN).
