We're back for a 4th year with our sell out Roots to Work conference, bringing together those already working and those looking to develop careers or enterprises in the food growing sector.

This year, thanks to the partnership with the Gaia Foundation and the We Feed the World exhibition, we are able to widen our focus to all those working or interested in finding their place in the field of good food. This means additional speakers and workshops on setting up good food enterprises, as well our popular sessions focused on launching and developing food growing enterprises. We will also have a chance to discuss how we support and grow the movement and enjoy the photography exhibition in the venue.

Who’s this for?

This is for people working or looking to find work in the good food sector, this day of speakers, workshops and events will inspire and support you on your journey.
