The National Federation of Young Farmers' Clubs (NFYFC)’s new environmental campaign 'Protect Your Future' is underway.

The campaign, which was launched by NFYFC Chairwoman Katie Hall at the Council meeting in February, aims to see the organisation plant a tree per member during the Government’s 'Year of Green Action'.

Wedmore YFC in Somerset are one of the first to get started, having already successfully had their application approved. Clubs and counties across the country are already ordering sapling trees from The Woodland Trust to plant in November 2019.

Marcus Bailey, Personal Development Steering Group Chairman, said: “It’s fantastic to see clubs already getting on board with this and planning their projects.

“This campaign is a simple way for YFCs to show their support for sustainability and the environment. I am really excited about seeing all the photos of the trees being planted later this year.”

While the main focus of the campaign is tree planting, NFYFC is also encouraging YFCs to be green in 2019 and do at least one thing to support the environment and their local community.
