Celery project in Greater Manchester may help in saving UK peatlands

In the first trial of its kind in the UK, celery is to be grown in a pioneering 'wetter farming' project. The vegetable is being grown in a project aiming to show how degraded bogs can be restored to capture carbon, bolster biodiversity and provide an income for farmers.

The Wildlife Trust for Lancashire, Manchester and North Merseyside is behind the pioneering trial, growing celery on an area of re-wetted peatland in Greater Manchester – a trial that is being watched, with interest, by the agricultural community nationally.
