This webinar is the launch of a new Rural Innovation Support Service (RISS) Agroforestry group, facilitated by SAC consultants Poppy Frater, sheep and grassland specialist, and Stephen Adlard, woodland specialist. The group will focus on integrating livestock and forestry. 

RISS groups are led by farmers to develop projects relevant to farmers. Read more about RISS here.

The facilitators will follow the webinar with a survey to understand the questions, experiences and challenges you have. This will inform the direction and activity for the group.
