Grant supports water and soil restoration project using mycofiltration systems

« Go back

Flete Field Lab has been awarded a grant under its Sustainable Communities funding programme to continue their work piloting natural remedies for soil and water issues in South Devon.
Moving into our third year, this funding will support them to widen access to their work, increasing communications with landowners, universities, funders, participants, volunteers and other organisations working in the field.


Co-Director Shelley Castle said “The replicable nature of our project provides great opportunities for
farmers and community led groups to make a difference to their local environment across the UK and
this valued support from the Naturesave Trust helps us connect with many more people”.
Building a network is both vital for the health and resilience of Flete Field Lab as a growing organisation as well as providing inspiration to people who really want to make a difference. Flete Field Lab will be producing and sharing short videos in order to share learning from the work on mycofiltration and biochar, growing their UK-wide audience and support as well as providing Open-Source research from the MSc students from University of Plymouth.

Flete Field Lab is is a land-based experimental programme of soil and water regeneration trials. You can learn more about their work here.
