Tickets on sale now: click here for tickets and more information.
The Organic Growers Alliance held the first Organic Matters in 2019 to facilitate the exchange of technical information within the industry, through speaker sessions and networking opportunities. The conference will be a day-long event for experienced horticulturalists and new entrants based here at Stretford Public Hall.
The event will have a ‘Northern’ theme running through it with presentations from experienced growers in the region and an emphasis on building the organic market in the North.
The conference will hear from inspirational projects working to grow organic growers, and reflect on the prospects for organic growth in the North. Download the outline programme here. Not all sessions will be livestreamed (main hall only), but all will be recorded and available to view after the Conference.
Lunch will be available to purchase on the day from an outside provider using local and organically sourced produce.
The OGA are committed to this being a face to face event, though circumstances around the Covid pandemic may change. The organiser will also be providing an online option for people to participate remotely.
The safety of delegates is the OGA’s first priority and the OGA are working with us here at the hall to ensure you have a safe experience and to keep Covid risks to a minimum. Face masks will be required to be worn in communal areas, social distancing (2m between seats) will be observed, the conference will be ventilated as far as possible, sanitisation stations will be available, and delegates are being asked to take a lateral flow test up to a day before the Conference. A full statement about this will be released by the OGA soon.
