We are holding our next Foam Weeding field lab event at Somerset Flower Farm from 11am - 2.30pm on Wednesday 11th of September.
This is a follow-on event from to last meeting on the 19th of July.

At this event, we will be reviewing the impact of the foam weeding application which was carried out on the 19th. Those who could not attend the last event are more than welcome to attend this event - we will also carry out another demonstration of the foam weeding for those who couldn’t attend as well as an optional farm walk.

A formal agenda will be sent upon booking. Please email Astrid at producer.support@soilassociation.org to book your place.
 
We look forward to hearing from you.
