Farmer Activ­i­ty & Net­work­ing Days

Join oth­er like-mind­ed farm­ers to share best prac­tice and learn from your peers, get to know the LEAF Edu­ca­tion team and stay up to date with new devel­op­ments at our reg­u­lar Activ­i­ty & Net­work­ing Days. Some of these will be held in per­son and some online.

LEAF Education is committed to keeping farmers up to date with developments, such as new projects that might be of interest. Members and Non-Members alike also have the opportunity to get to know the LEAF Education Team, particularly their Regional Education Consultant, helping to put faces to names — plus you'll have the opportunity to quiz our team and your peers. The Activity & Networking Events are also useful for farmers to share examples of good practice or to learn from our members and your peers and to pose questions.

Our LEAF Education Members, LEAF Farmer Members and LEAF Open Farm Sunday Host Farmers receive a discount to these events and limited numbers of free tickets. They are led by your local Regional Educational Consultant and may be held online or face-to-face — please view individual event entries for details.
