In brief:A 5 year landscape partnership scheme funded by HLF, aiming to improve existing grazing systems on key chalk grassland sites along the north downs, and reintroduce management and grazing where needed. There is a strong community engagement element to the project with guided walks, educational work and volunteer recruitment and training. The project uses its own cattle and sheep in a flying flock / herd and also works with graziers where possible.
