Organic catch up and cake (4-5pm)
After this event we’re inviting any organic farmers, or anyone interested in converting to organic, to an informal catch up chat -- with cake. We want to hear what is happening on your holding, and to find out if there is anything we can do to help you, as well as share a bit more on what we’re doing at Soil Association Scotland, and through the Scottish Organic Forum.

Even if you can’t make the full event, please let us know you plan to attend for the catch up session so we can make sure there is enough cake to go around.
