The CEO of South Kerry Development Partnership is welcoming funding for a project combining biodiversity, inclusion and accessibility.
The Kerry Eco-Social Farming was recently awarded €128,555 under the European Innovation Partnership.
The project will seek to implement biodiversity actions on host farms within the Kerry Social Farming Network.
Along with practical actions, training will be offered during the year-long project, which will begin later this year, in habitat management and biodiversity for host farmers and participants.
There are now around 40 participants in the Kerry Social Farming project with 30 host farms.
