The Oxford Real Farming Conference is a must for anyone concerned with the future of farming and food sovereignty. This is a two day event 6th & 7th January 2015 - so it is high time to book your tickets!!
Here's a few lines from the ORFC website about the event:
Chagfood is a 5-acre CommunityMarketGarden on the north-east edge of Dartmoor supplying 75 veg-shares a week to local households. We are going into our sixth season and are looking for a hard-working, enthusiastic apprentice to join our growing team for six-months from mid April - mid October 2015.
There is currently a job vacancy suitable for WWOOFers who have experience on commercial organic vegetable farms.
FarmStart Manchester is the UK’s first organic vegetable farm business incubator, currently in it’s second season. With it we aim to make the route into farming easier by providing access to land, training and mentoring, as well as support selling to local markets.
We are looking for a grower to work with Richard Plowright here at Stowey Rocks Farm in Somerset. The Assistant Grower will help with the running of the whole growing enterprise from crop planning to market.
Another wonderful blog from 'Hawkeandherring' - these guys are WWOOFing in the UK and here they share their top tips on how to make the experience as enjoyable as possible. It serves as a guide to best WWOOFing etiquette and gastromic pragmatism rolled into one!!
