Collaborating and communicating to promote more sustainable farming

Home / ELMS Test and Trial: Peer-to-Peer Learning

We are delighted to be running an ELMS Test and Trial looking at how peer-to-peer learning can help farmers deliver more sustainable, regenerative farming.

About the project

We are currently working with farmers to explore the role of peer-to-peer learning in driving the uptake of more sustainable, resilient farming through Integrated Farm Management (IFM). As part of the project, farmers are being paired up with an Industry-Leading Farmer (ILF) who will provide free support and one-to-one mentoring.

Participating farmers receive:

  • Peer-to-peer networking opportunities
  • Interactive, in-person workshops
  • Support to complete the LEAF Sustainable Farming Review

The findings of the project will play an important role in helping inform the role of peer-to-peer learning in Defra policy for ELMS.


Project findings

The project will run to January 2024 and we will be publishing findings from the project as it continues, so please visit this page to keep up to date. You can watch our initial kick off 'Discovery Webinar' below to find out more about how the project works.
