Spotlight on organic conversion; farming.
It has been organised by the North-East Organic Programme, in conjunction with the Northumbria Organic Producer Group (NOP), and will be held at Thornton Park Farm, Berwick, on February 20.
The event is designed to provide producers who are considering organic conversion, are in conversion, or already in organic production, with an opportunity to meet and discuss organic arable production.
The day will include a farm walk with host Andrew Forster looking at his own arable crop rotation. This will be followed by talks from Stephen Briggs, of Abacus Organic Associates, and Andrew Wilkinson, of Gilchesters Organics, covering a range of topics, including arable conversion, soil management, weed management, crop rotations and seed supply.
There will also be an opportunity to meet with stall holders such as OF&G, Soil Association Certification, Soil Fertility Dunns, Cyberacres Science, Coastal Grain, Organic Arable Marketing Group (OAMG), Dods of Haddington and many others. Anyone wanting further information should contact the NEOP office on 0845 122 7645 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
