We are delighted to announce the return of our popular ‘Ask the Farmer’ sessions this winter where a number of our amazing Ambassadors will be on-line to tell us a little more about their farm and farming system and to answer your questions about farming for nature.
These ‘live’ Monday evening sessions will include a short interview with the featured farmer together with some images from the farm, and then an open Q&A session where you can ‘ask the farmer’ about whatever you would like to know, with a focus on practical management advice. It is a great opportunity to learn from our Ambassadors who work with nature every day on their farms, and also to share your own ideas and experience of ‘Farming for Nature’.
This will be all done online through Zoom which you can access on your smart phone or computer. These sessions will take place on weekly on Mondays between November and February (excluding the Christmas period) at 8pm and will last up to one hour.
