Tried and Tested partner LEAF are holding their annual conference 20th November online.
As LEAF looks to celebrate 30 years of developing and delivering more sustainable farming, this conference aims to address the question of taking action now. Skilfully chaired by BBC broadcaster and journalist, Tom Heap, it is a unique opportunity for farmers, climate change experts, researchers and food industry representatives to discuss and learn from each other and agree coordinated action to tackle climate change.
The conference also includes the launch of LEAF’s next 10 year strategy 2021-2031.
