Environmental issues are of increasing importance in all organisations. As part of the St Fagans conference the opportunity was taken to introduce OpenArch delegates to the ways in which these issues are addressed in two key areas: garden and farm management.

During the tours, staff at St Fagans talked about the issues they face, particularly on the farm, in running a commercial operation that also forms part of the visitor experience. This tension is felt in particular in terms of the interpretation of activities, the management of land to ensure viability and the necessity of conforming to environmental standards of business practice.
