The inaugural ORFC in the Field event in July - originally planned for 2020 - was a great success. Co-curated with the Oxford Real Farming Conference team, the small, intimate, practical workshops covering subjects ranging from Holistic Restoration and Saving Seed for Growers to beekeeping - allowed opportunities for deep dives, knowledge transfer, peer-to-peer learning and lots of time for questions and discussions.
Folk singer, song collector and conservationist, Sam Lee, closed the event with songs and stories in the field.
We will be announcing the dates for ORFC in the Field 2023 soon. To register your interest please email email@example.com.
Award-winning writer, Sarah Langford, gave the keynote speech on Day 2 of ORFC in the Field 2022, on the publication day of her book, Rooted: Stories of a Farming Revolution. She talks to us about why practical workshops like those at ORFC in the Field are really valuable.
