Organic Matters Conference 2022

Aug 24, 2022

The Organic Growers Alliance has announced the third Organic Matters Conference is to be held at the Midlands Art Centre in Birmingham on the 18th of October.

 

 

This event will see experienced horticulturalists and new entrants into organic growing come together to exchange technical information within the industry through speaker sessions and networking opportunities.

 

The conference is committed to supporting the horticulture sector by bringing together expertise, best practice and innovation from across the industry. Organic Matters hopes to build bridges between organics and regenerative agriculture, welcoming a diverse group of delegates and speakers, and supporting relationships between experienced growers and new entrants. Organic Matters will be filling a vital gap for technical information in the UK horticulture sector.

Ticket prices range from £10-£50, and to make the conference accessible to all there are a limited number of bursaries available for students and those on limited incomes. Please apply to hello@organicgrowersalliance.co.uk
