Innovative Farmers celebrates 10 years! To celebrate and look back over 10 years of Innovative Farmers, we have devoted this edition to the programme.
In this edition, Helen Browning looks back on the early days and how the programme came into being and the funding from the Prince of Wales’s Charitable Foundation that made it all possible. Liz Bowles, Ben Raskin, Peter Plate and Jerry Alford look at some of the field labs that they have been involved with. Looking ahead, we need a seismic change in the way we produce food and manage land if we are to tackle the climate, nature and health crises. Ana Allamond reports on LIAISON, an EU- funded project designed to help collaboration and co-design.
Something we may see more of in the future is regenerative forestry. Clive Thomas reports on the need for a regenerative approach to forestry and a network of forest labs to bring about the innovation that’s need for better forest management. Elsewhere, Mike Mallett of Maple Farm shares his tips for managing a successful organic poultry.
