2nd November 2023
Come and join Biomass Connect and Scotland’s Rural College (SRUC) for an opportunity to learn about growing biomass crops in a Northern Climate.
The event will focus on showcasing a range of biomass crops and discussions on the agronomy, economics, and environmental impacts of different biomass crops. There will be a guided crop tour to view various biomass crops planted at the Biomass Connect Hub site, Auchincruive estate. We are also holding an event the day before (1st November) at Boghall near Edinburgh. Feel free to join us for both and compare the two hub sites. If doing so please register for the two events separately so that we cater accordingly.
All are welcome – please register to book a place. We look forward to seeing you there!
