@martian, have theses been confirmed yet, even provisionally?

Asking for a friend.... genuinely!
Unfortunately not. We had a catch-up yesterday and all I can say is: it's going to be a cracking show! There are one or two speakers who we know will only be on one day and when I work out how to extract the info from the computer, I'll post these. Final line-up still a week or two away. Plenty of tickets left, so no tearing hurry as yet. There will be a good mix of livestock/no-till/policy etc on both days, so your best bet, if you can only spare one day, is to toss a coin and trust whatever Lady Luck decides.

As a poor Gambler, I have gone "Each-Way", and got two tickets :)

@martian did you end up with a speaker on composting? I know you said you'd have demo's, but was hoping for someone to explain the science of it.
Sorry, I never replied. There's at least one talk each day on composting and probably a bokashi one too as well as demos of various different techniques.
As to the full line-up of speakers, we are getting closer but it is still under constant fiddling. All I can say is that it is going to be brilliant. Sold a lot of tickets to trusting delegates, so we're duty bound to put on a good show!

Five nature-recovery projects spanning nearly 100,000ha across the West Midlands, Cambridgeshire, the Peak District, Norfolk and Somerset have been announced by the government and Natural England today (Thursday, May 26).

This is the equivalent in size to all 219 current National Reserves.

The aim of the projects is to deliver nature recovery at a landscape scale, helping to tackle biodiversity loss, climate change and improve public health and well-being.

All five projects will make a significant contribution towards the national delivery of the international commitment to protect at least 30% of land and...
