Public Money for Public Goods – Benefits for farmers, rural communities and the environment

Thursday 7 February 2019 - 07/02/19

Seamus Heaney Centre, 45 Main Street, Bellaghy BT45 8HT

Much has been made of our departure from the EU’s Common Agricultural Policy and a move towards support based on “public money for public goods”; but what does this mean? How would this work in practice and is it the right path for farming and rural communities in Northern Ireland?

Join Rural Community Network and RSPB NI at Lough Beg, to see some examples of what a public money for public goods payment could look like.

See how farmers in the area have been supported to deliver a range of benefits across the landscape, from flood protection, biodiversity restoration and carbon storage. Participants will hear how farmers have been rewarded for this work through Agri–environment, how it fits into their businesses and how other business opportunities have been created for rural communities through the improvement in the landscape.

We will meet at the Seamus Heaney Home Ground Centre in Bellaghy for an initial discussion and then travel on to the Lough Beg site.

Come prepared with wellies and waterproofs!
