"An excellent event, if only I had been on it when I started out on the Organic journey seven years ago our soils would be in a better state now. Should be a must for any new entrant to Organic Farming before they can claim any subsidy"
Charles Hunter Smart, Bradwell Grove Estate (2012)

"Well organised, and delivered, informative and very relevant"
Nick Shaylor (2012)

"Wonderful event, thanks to all especially those who sponsored the places"
