Green Box

The Green Box is a sim­ple, step by step approach to mon­i­tor­ing the envi­ron­ment on your farm. It is sim­ple and prac­ti­cal to use and pro­vides guid­ance and advice on what you might see and when. Divid­ed into four sec­tions — bio­di­ver­si­ty, soil, water and air, the Green Box will help you record and mon­i­tor activ­i­ty on your farm.

The Green Box will pro­vide the vital infor­ma­tion the indus­try needs in terms of real on farm’ facts. With these facts we can col­lec­tive­ly pro­mote farm­ing and the results can also serve as a per­son­al reflec­tion of your farm’s per­for­mance. The Green Box will also help farm­ers mea­sure the pos­i­tive impact of their man­age­ment tech­niques and help tar­get future prac­tices to gain the biggest improve­ments. Mon­i­tor­ing is also a great way to involve the local com­mu­ni­ty and local experts. 

The Green Box is FREE to LEAF mem­bers and £50 for non members.
