Your sponsorship will help Blenheim plant and care for a one tree, from collecting the seed, nurturing it into a sapling, preparing the land, planting, tending to the growing tree and protecting it for years to come. Your donation will go towards creating a woodland to help wildlife and nature thrive.
With our environment at the heart of our land, and agricultural practices responsible for up to 25% of all carbon emissions, we will join forces with Government and other landed estates to lead in the concept of ‘natural capital’. This is a new model of valuing our natural capital; an innovative way to attribute the benefits of good air, water, soil, woodland, green spaces and biodiversity to the total ecosystem, and so to generate new income streams and promote the best long-term decisions. We want to be the first generation to truly leave this land in a better state than it was found.
This is the long-term change, looking out to the 10-year horizon. We will use the lessons of natural capital to first become carbon-neutral. Then we want to go further, to demonstrate carbon-negative land management. There is no commonly agreed ‘one best’ sustainable practice amongst farming methods such as regenerative, agroforestry, and organic. We will work with partners who can guide us on this journey, and together we will find the best mix, or model, that proves effective for our sustainable land use ambitions.
