- Alan Schofield
I have been an organic vegetable grower for thirty four years running our business Growing with Nature along with my wife Debra and son Christopher. We have been running a box scheme since 1992. I have been involved with the Soil Association for over 20 years and for 12 years was the chair of the Horticultural Standards Committee and for 3 years had a seat on the Standards Board. I was on the UKROFS technical committee for 5 years and for the last 9 years have been the Chairman of the Organic Growers Alliance.
I have campaigned within the Soil Association for the Farmer and Growers to have more of a say in Soil Association activities. I am a good speaker and communicator and work hard for the wider recognition of the benefits of organic growing.
