13May2010: "Power to the Farm" Seminar

Royal Agricultural College
"Power to the Farm" Seminar

Thursday 13th May 2010

Boutflour Hall, 10:00 – 16:00

Please find below a copy of the provisional programme for our next event.

The aim of the day is to introduce some of the “farm scale technologies” that are currently available to farms, communities and rural businesses.

Can energy independence mitigate climate change, save money and reduce our waste?

Dr Richard Baines has agreed to chair the event and set the scene. Richard Gedge will be joining us and sharing his experiences from Natsley Farm along with experts from Leaf, Biogen Greenfinch, Encrafts, Environment Agency, Business Link and DECC.

A booking form is attached for your convenience; please accept my apologies for any cross postings.

We would be very grateful if you could pass on the information to anyone that you feel maybe interested in attending.

Kind regards
