Held in partnership with RuRALink, the Military Rural Careers Insight Day (Sustainable Farming and Small Holding) will take place at FarmED on August 22nd, designed for service families who want to explore a future life in sustainable farming and food, or want to start their own small holding.
Attendees will have the opportunity to find out about the future of regenerative farming, agri-tech, sustainable food and farm diversification, and where their skills and passions might fit in. They’ll also hear from successful ex-forces people in farming and related employment.
The day will include a farm walk and a chance to explore soil health, biodiversity, bee keeping and market gardening. There will also be opportunities to make connections, find out about training and qualifications and consider farm enterprise issues and how to develop a business plan.
Social distancing guidelines will be followed throughout. There will be light refreshments and a safe-collect picnic lunch.
We are also hoping to sign the Armed Forces Covenant and proudly support those who serve or have served and their families.
Cost for adults: £10 pp. Children under 16 are free.
