I’ve heard a lot about it, it’s one of those events that leads by it’s reputation, and finally this year I am getting the opportunity to attend the Oxford Real Farming Conference.
If you have read my blog before you will know how passionately I advocate organic food and farming. As a trained environmental scientist and as a cook I think organic agriculture makes sense, both for the environment and for our health. However I do feel that as individuals have lost the link between the growing of and consumption of food. So I am very excited by the conference’s theme – ‘A Cross-the-board rethink’. Also to see on the agenda a workshop on connecting farming with people through local markets, which is being organised by the Soil Association.
