FarmED is a key partner in The GREAT Project.
We are helping to gather evidence, deliver knowledge and nurture enterprise in regenerative agriculture and sustainable food.
If you are a farmer, grower or adviser in Gloucestershire the project can support you and cover the costs of relevant courses and events at FarmED.
The GREAT Project is putting Gloucestershire in the vanguard of the transition to regenerative agriculture.
GREAT stands for Gloucestershire Regenerative Environment and Agriculture Transition. It’s a three-year project, funded by Thirty Percy, to boost the transition to farming methods that restore the soil, water and air. We want to join the dots between farmers, advisors, growers, mentors and their communities to facilitate this change that is so sorely needed for a resilient future for farms, nature and the earth.
We have three core aims: build evidence, facilitate knowledge exchange, and nurture enterprise.
We’re subsidising Gloucestershire farmers to attend events across the county where they can learn, mentor, and share experience. We’re developing a network of farmers, advisors, mentors, and convenors who are ready to be part of the regenerative transition.
We’re building the evidence for regenerative farming, growing and food systems. By talking to farmers and new entrants, and doing case studies, we’re finding out what works, what’s needed, and how to make it happen.
We’re supporting farmers, growers and new entrants to innovate and grow their businesses. We’re running subsidised enterprise bootcamps and webinars, a mentoring programme, and a new entrants programme.
