Organic Matters: UK Horticulture Conference

Event date: 
Tuesday, October 22, 2019
Event venue: 
Trinity Centre, Bristol, United Kingdom
Event description: 

Organic Matters will be hosting 150 delegates from organic and regenerative horticulture. We will facilitate the exchange of technical knowledge through an exciting programme of speaker sessions (8 in total). There will be plenty of opportunities for networking between delegates and speakers. The sessions will be recorded and available after the event for those who cannot attend. We hope to establish the conference as an annual event which will grow over the coming years. Expect technical sessions covering themes such as soil health, pest & disease management, plant science, mentoring and work efficiency.

Organic Growers Alliance (OGA) is at the helm of this conference. OGA is a community interest company and member organisation made up of organic food growers and horticulturalists from across the UK. It is steered by a group of
voluntary directors who felt there was a real need for a conference focusing on the technical side of horticulture to help those in the sector expand their knowledge, push forward new ideas and give an opportunity for membership to come together.

Organic Matters day-tickets are now on sale and cost £35/£45 + booking fees (members/non-members) which includes 8 x 90-minute sessions, industry stalls, networking opportunities with the other 150 delegates and refreshments.

There will be an organic lunch available on site at an affordable price (not included in ticket). 

OGA will be organising an evening before meet-up as well as a farm walk at Sims Hill Shared Harvest on the Wednesday morning following the conference.
