Open Farm Sunday 2017
The organisers of Open Farm Sunday are looking to increase the number of participants for their 2017 event, being held on Sunday the 11th of June.
Farmers are being encouraged to demonstrate the dedication, skills, technology and passion that goes into producing great food and managing the countryside.
Open Farm Sunday is organised by LEAF and they are helping farmers prepare for the event by hosting a series of FREE webinars. The webinars, which run for just 20 minutes, are full of ideas, information and top tips for hosting safe and engaging events.
Nine webinars are scheduled for broadcast from January until June – but don’t worry if you miss one as they are available shortly afterwards to view on demand. Catch up on the December webinar which gives an overview of Open Farm Sunday by clicking this link to Youtube.
The webinars give lots help with planning and organising, and there is one dedicated to first time participants. As well as discussing activities, resources and publicity, there is also important information about health and safety.
Presenters from LEAF, the team of OFS Regional Co-ordinators, and experienced host farmers contribute their wealth of knowledge and experience to the sessions.
