Herefordshire Food Charter. Healthy food for people, place and planet


Are you a landworker looking to carry out your own research, but scared to take the plunge? Or maybe you're already experimenting on your farm but could do with some extra support...

Small-scale farmers and landworkers across the country are pioneering innovation in farming and land work, but they are rarely acknowledged or rewarded for it.

To address this, we are excited to announce the second phase of 'Experts in Your Field', an LWA initiative that works to support grassroots, community-led research in agroecology.

This second phase of 'Experts in Your Field' will provide funding, support and equipment for small-scale farmers and landworkers to undertake research that is important to them.

The findings of this research will then be shared with other farmers and policymakers to drive innovation, promote more sustainable agricultural and land management practices, and provide vital evidence to support a transition to agroecology at a policy level.

➡️ If this sounds of interest to you and you would like to be involved then please sign up for our free webinar on Monday the 11th of December to learn more. Register here:
