Going for Growth, UK Organic Congress 2018
November 15 - November 16
On 15-16 November the UK Organic Congress 2018 Going for Growth – Transforming organic food and farming in the UK will be held in Dunchurch.
Underpinning organic food and farming are some big ideas about how to make a better world. The organic approach cares about things that affect us all – health, welfare, the environment, fairness, quality and sustainability.
Communicating this needs a focus on real benefits, while building bridges with others. The UK Organic Congress 2018 will feature a new, positive vision for the contribution that organic can make to UK food and farming, including an aspiration to be up there with the best in terms of production and market shares. During the Congress, the Organic Research Centre will present some results achieved within the CERERE project relating to organic arable, including expanding production in the UK and variety testing/breeding.
The Congress is a unique event organised jointly by leading organic organisations, including the Organic Research Centre, Landworkers’ Alliance, Organic Arable, Organic Farmers & Growers, Organic Growers Alliance, Organic Trade Board, Soil Association and Whole Health Agriculture.
