Farmers will be told how to reduce the impact of wet weather on soil health, with the aim of allowing soil to drain, which will encourge more grass to grow.

The event is being run by a partnership of organisations, including Cumbria Farm Environment Partnership, Rural Skills Cumbria, Eden Rivers Trust and Catchment Sensitive Farming.
