The aim of this course is to provide people working in Scottish upland land management the opportunity to see and hear how native woodland has been responding to changes in grazing pressure in the part of Scandinavia most environmentally similar to Scotland.

Aims & Themes: exploring small scale sustainable farming; hay making & orchards within a cultural landscape; the challenges of sustainable rural development, community engagement and heritage management. Participants will learn about subsistence farming as opposed to intensive farming, as well as traditional ways of managing the land.
