International activities on Sphagnum farming

Sphagnum farming is an expanding research field with relevance for the protection of peatlands and climate. Activities aiming at the establishment and the utilisation of Sphagnum and the restoration of degraded bogs.

Sphagnum farming workshop
2011 in Canada

To initiate the international exchange of research findings and practical experience there was a first Sphagnum farming workshop held in Bremen (Germany) in 2005 with 31 participants from Canada and five European countries. The exchange continued in a second workshop in Shippagan (New Brunswick, Canada) in 2011 with 21 persons participating. PDF (S. 42-44)
