“Why Peat-free?” – Emma Goodyer, IUCN (International Union for the Conservation of Nature).
19th March @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Emma is the Manager of IUCN UK Peatland Programme, based at the Scottish Wildlife Trust. She previously worked as a wetland ecologist, predominantly in Scotland, and has made a study of blanket bog habitats. The use of large quantities of peat in horticulture has long been a matter for controversy. Emma will provide up-to-date information on the subject.
