Description


April 19th & 20th 2018

Robinson College, University of Cambridge, Cambridge, UK CB3 9AN


Dear Guest,

We are delighted to invite you to Cool Farm Alliance’s 2018 annual meeting, taking place over two days on April 19th and 20th.

This year's meeting has moved from Oxford to Cambridge. While New College has been a beautiful venue for the past two years, Robinson College will offer more space and a chance to tour a farm to see examples of management practices which the CFT measures and rewards.

The meeting will catch up on progress over the last year, and discuss plans for the future. Drinks and dinner on the evening of 19th will provide a sociable setting in which to meet new contacts, share ideas and help to continue building the Cool Farm community.

NB: Registration for the annual meeting will close on 31st March 2018.

If you would prefer to be invoiced directly rather than purchasing tickets through this site, please contact Daniella Malin at daniella@coolfarmtool.org
