Innovative Farmers: a new network to support farmer-led innovation

The Department of Geography in collaboration with the Brighton and Sussex Universities Food Network (BSUFN) and the Sussex Sustainability Research Programme (SSRP) are organising a weekly seminar series on “Food, Climate and Society”. This series will explore the multiple challenges that the global food system is facing: feeding more people healthy food while limiting environmental and social impacts.

This week’s seminar will be given by Dr Tom MacMillan, Director of Innovation for the Soil Association. The seminar will be on Thursday the 3rd of March, 12:30 until 14:00, and will be held in Arts C, Global Studies Resource Centre, University of Sussex. Tom MacMillan will be talking about Innovative Farmers, a new initiative to support farmer-led innovation in the UK.

The Soil Association is the UK’s leading membership charity campaigning for healthy, humane and sustainable food, farming and land use.
