By December 6, 2021No Comments

The Brassica and Leafy Salad is less than 2 months away! After 3 years the event will return to Peterborough to represent two of the largest sectors of horticulture.

We are pleased to announce our headline speakers for the conference. All the way from Australia (with the help of the internet) Graeme Sait. Graeme is the co-founder of a Queensland Company, Nutri-Tech Solutions (NTS), a recognised world leader in sustainable agriculture/horticulture. He is currently working on two new books covering soil, plant, environmental and human health issues. His communication skills are most evident during his passionate, charismatic presentations which are often described as “life-changing” and “inspirational”.

Also confirmed to speak at the conference is Professor Simon Pearson, Director, Lincoln Institute for Agri-Food Technology. Simon will be joining the conference line up to update the audience on the DEFRA automation review and the work that is underway at the University.

Ben Taylor, Regenerative Consultant, who may be better known as Regenben from his vast following on Twitter, will be speaking to the delegates on “The healthy food dichotomy.” Follow Ben now.
