Virtually in Oxford

On Thursday and Friday this week I’ll be joining the Oxford Real Farming Conference, albeit virtually. Online tickets are still available.

I had a great first experience of the conference last year, but I’m opting to save money and travel this time round. Last year’s conference was a great opportunity to see friends and heroes in food and farming – half the value of these events is the serendipitous meetings in hallways between sessions – but the online programme this year still looks good. Of particular interest:

  • From Corporations to Communities: Tipping the balance of power in decision-making about our food
  • Demonstrating Leadership through Local Authorities
  • Farm Deep Dive with Rebecca Mayhew (I’m a huge fan of Rebecca and Stuart Mayhew and was chuffed to speak at a launch event they organised for a regenerative agriculture community in East Anglia)
  • Agri-spin: How Big Industry Influences Food and Farming Policy
  • Shifting the Narrative from a Cost-of-Living Crisis to a Cost-of-Profit Crisis
  • Joining Forces to Shift the Narrative for Food and Farming

…and that’s just Thursday.
