We work with landowners and farmers of all sizes. Giving advice on water friendly and cost-effective land management techniques.
This advice includes full farm reviews, creating natural flood management solutions, creating new and wet woodlands and re-wetting land as well as improving riparian buffers to reduce runoff from the land. The goal of all of these is to help reduce sediments and nutrient inputs to our rivers. We also signpost landowners to funding and other support available.
Projects we run for this work are:
Leven Farm Facilitation Group
Water Environment Grant (also work closely with catchment sensitive farming).

Farming is a key part of the economic, social and cultural identity of the Tees. Our Team has decades of combined experience within the farming and agricultural industry.
Natural Flood Management
Natural flood management not only reduces flood risk it can also achieve multiple benefits for people and wildlife, helping restore habitats, improve water quality and helping make catchments more resilient to the impacts of climate change
Providing riparian habitats for many species (eg water vole) and increasing biodiversity. Improving habitat corridors linking fragmented and isolated habitats through which species can move which is essential to maintain and increase biodiversity.
