Stewardship funding of local-origin seed mixes
A lot of our work collecting local origin seed mixes over the last ten years has been funded by Higher Level Stewardship which was run by Natural England. Their replacement scheme, Countryside Stewardship (CS), may be able to offer similar funding to land managers. The relevant option under CS is ‘FM2 – Major preparatory works for priority habitats (creation and restoration) and priority species’.
