We’re pleased to announce that the first ORFC in the Field will be going ahead on 7th and 8th July, in partnership with FarmED at their beautiful new venue in the Cotswolds.
The two-day event will build on sessions from this year’s Oxford Real Farming Conference and dive deeper into the practical application of agroecology and regenerative farming techniques.
Participants will be able to choose from a number of field-based workshops including agroforestry design; growing, harvesting and utilising heritage grains; building and monitoring soil health; and creating and running a CSA. The full programme will be available shortly.
There will also be plenty of opportunity to share knowledge with others and to enjoy seasonal meals cooked by local chefs, including a celebratory feast on the Tuesday night. There will be plenty of music and poetry too!
There are only 100 places available for this inaugural event, which promises to be a dynamic follow-up to this year’s sold-out Oxford Real Farming Conference. We suggest you get in early and book your place now. There are also a few bursaries available – to find out more please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The price for two days of workshops and lunches is £125. The evening meal is £20 extra. Camping is available on site for a small fee, or you can look at the recommended list of accommodation options here.
