Organic growers' gathering will debate the impacts of Brexit

The theme of this year's Organic Producers' Conference, which takes place from 1 - 2 February at Aston University in Birmingham, will be 'Rising to the challenge: Practical organic farming solutions for an uncertain future'.
 

The annual Organic Producers’ Conference is the event where organic and other producers interested in ecological approaches to sustainable food production come together with researchers and advisers to share ideas on making agriculture perform better, for their businesses and society. In its 11th year, the conference is organised by Sustain member the the Organic Research Centre (ORC).
 
The organisers this year felt they had to focus on the issue that is dominating the food agenda: Brexit and its consequences, which (as the event title highlights) has thrown food businesses into a state of uncertainty. As usual, alongside the debates, there will be a range of practical, technical sessions.
