In September 2007, Michael Russell, the Environment Minister, asked pupils from P1 to S4 in four schools in the Highlands and Islands: “Who wants to be a crofter?” All hands were raised. The occasion was the final celebration of Planting to Plate, a celebration of Crofting in the Highland Year of Culture 2007. This was the pilot project for what has become Crofting Connections.
