How can we help British business improve environmental performance?

Get on my land

Our project aims to facilitate a peer to peer network to provide potential agriculturists with the information, support and practical opportunities they need to get started.

 

The problem - Over 50% of farmers are nearing retirement, and too few of the younger generation are currently on track to enter agriculture related professions. The art of growing produce has not been learnt by many due in part to the increasing urbanisation of the population. The routes to a career in farming may not always be obvious to someone who is new to the subject. We need to find a better way of passing on retiring farmers skills to the younger generations.
