The new farming group is working on how we can support local farmers to make the Transition to ways of working that are more resilient to rising oil prices. The particular areas that we want to look at are ways of farming that are less dependent on oil (in the form of fertilizers, pesticides and oil needed to drive farm machinery) and how to relocalise food distribution so that as transport becomes more expensive, farmers are already plugged into local markets.

We have two events coming up:

  • Tuesday 7th December: Film showing - "A Farm for the Future"

7:30 Bharat Bhavan (the old library) on Mill Road

  • Saturday 22nd January: Mini-conference - "The Future of Food - Plankton Pie or Carrot Cake?"

2-5:30pm, venue to be confirmed.
