How the Trust works with the Estate

Although a separate entity, the Trust works with the Estate on all aspects of the estate biodiversity. The Farm Manager Andrew Ferguson is a trustee.

The Trust approves management plans for the reserves, instigates and collaborates on research and education and land use, conservation and restoration.  

The Trust role is to provide leadership with expert advice and support to ensure the whole farm promotes the natural sciences in the context of a farming operation.

There are regular meetings with the Farm Manager and Trustees.

Partners and the local community attend events organised by the Trust.

We believe this to be a unique relationship to ensure the legacy John Spedan Lewis is maintained.
