November 2014 9th Organic Producers' Conference

Practical research and innovation - diversity in practice


Created with flickr slideshow.

This year for the first time we brought together two popular organic events to allow more people to participate in both. The Soil Association’s National Soil Symposium (25th November) focused
on resilience. The ORC conference had producer-focused technical and business workshops on the first day (26th November), and a more specific focus on current research and innovation activities on the second day (27th November), with the aim of bringing producers, researchers, advisers and students together to make change happen!
