EVENT: Land for land workers 23rd January 2017

Are you a landowner? Are you seeking land for a growing or farming project? Are you interested in land access issues?

The evening will open with Humphrey Lloyd from Land Workers Alliance who will set the context for us: why is land access an issue, especially for new entrants to farming? Followed by: 

  • Matt Cracknell, FEED Bristol: his experience as a council tenant and working with new entrants on the land
  • Luke Hassel, Community Farm, The Story Farm, Valley Fest: being a landowner of Community Farm and what the benefits are to the landowner
  • Steph Wetherell, Coordinator for Beacon FarmsWhat we've learnt from the Landseekers' survey 
  • Beccy Marshall, an independent Land Agent: what to talk about when you've found your land match

Jamie, Petronella and Nessie will also be on hand to discuss their initiatives too if you missed the last event.

Light refreshments will be provided, and drinks will be available from the Canteen bar downstairs.
