Farming conference to address growth of post-Brexit plant agriculture

A spring conference will explore the potential and challenges of a shift away from traditional livestock-focused farming.

To be held at the British Library in London on April 11, the Grow Green event will discuss the implications of this shift for farmers, land managers and rural communities and explore how groups can work together to manage the challenges we face.

It will consider how we can tend our land more effectively, to provide for our changing diets, benefit our farming communities and protect our natural environment. 

Keynote speakers include Dr Helen Harwatt, Farmed Animal Law and Policy Fellow at Harvard University; Natalie Bennett, former leader of the Green Party; and Marcela Villarreal, Director of South-South Cooperation at the UN's Food and Agriculture Organisation.
