Are You A Future Farmer?
How to be a fair food farmer
There has never been a better time to get your hands dirty and begin a rewarding life on the land. Join us at The Field Institute to discover how you can become a fair food farmer. This workshop will give you the tools you need to start your journey or take the next step in creating a future in farming. Participants will learn:
Practical ways to get started and what’s involved in setting up an ethically viable farming model.
No land? Discover innovative ways to access land, including opportunities for land share through ‘Farm Incubator.’
- Ideas around sustainable growth.
- How to create multi-tiered farming systems.
A delicious, seasonal supper of local produce will be provided.
Keynote speaker Tammi Jonas (Jonai Farms) will discuss her transition from city dweller to fair food farmer. Jonai Farms is pioneering the relocalisation of their food supply chain with the set up of an on-farm butchery.
