Finally got to Groundswell having missed the previous years. Great to catch up with various folk I havent seen in a while and I was very impressed with what @martian and family have achieved. A truly excellent event. I couldn't get there for both days, but will definately plan to do both next time.
It was good to get a glimpse of you Richard. Hadn't seen you for a bit and thought you may have been eaten by a lion, or worse still, bought a plough. I'm sorry that I had an MP on tow so couldn't chat more.

When will the recordings be available @martian ? There are several I would like to have gone to within the same time slot.
Every session was recorded this year and, unless some technical or legal reason stops us, the whole lot will go online very soon. There's a bit of tinkering that has to happen, but I can't wait...had so many tantalising snippets from talks that I was passing by

Really glad that all the sessions were recorded as there were so many I wanted to attend that were on at the same time and would have felt I’d missed so much of what I was there for. Also dropped in on a panel discussion that I didn’t think I’d be interested in but stayed for the full hour as it was very engaging.

I particularly enjoyed listening to Karl Ritz in the big top, seeing the discussion on living mulch and had a long chat with Philip Wright after his talk.

Both pics taken at home. I can feel the "firtling through dung" habit developing in me :facepalm:

Atteneded a couple of talks, also had a good natter to a few peole. The defra croud seemed quite open to listening, espeically to the different challenges and landscapes we have will see what comes of it but at least it looks like they are open to listening. I think they are starting to understand the one fits all and the problems even the elms pilot will face.

get the impression that George Eustice does understand (and is reasonably sympathetic to) farmings issues probably more than most other farm / environment ministers I can remember

And therein lies the problem Number 10 ,or should I say Carrie,has with George, he is too close to farmers.

Will it be available to everyone or will it be behind a paywall ?

A great event, we'll be there with a stand next year, instead of me sitting in the bar most of the time.
It was great to talk to so many people and it proved to me that we (EcoStim) need to talk to a load more!!
So, if anyone wants to chat about our Biostimulant Range or our Organic Fertilisers (Fert's launching in 5 weeks or so) feel free to call/email me [email protected]

The Health and Safety Executive for Northern Ireland (HSENI) alongside the Farm Safety Partnership (FSP), has named new farm safety champions and commended the outstanding work on farm safety that has been carried out in the farming community in the last 20 years.
