CLA South East is kicking 2020 off with a free debate on the Isle of Wight, exploring whether farming can be both financially and environmentally sustainable.

It will be held on 29 January, from 6pm to 8.30pm at The Garlic Farm, supported by BCM.

The evening has a theme of ‘Food versus the environment: Can we farm profitably in harmony with nature?’, examining the challenges farmers and landowners face in balancing food production with environmental considerations.

The speaker panel is Harry Greenfield, Senior Land Use Policy Adviser at the CLA; Jamie Marsh, reserves manager at the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust; Vix Lowthion of the Green Party; and Nick Shorter, CLA member from Velcourt. The chair is James Attrill, President of the CLA Isle of Wight Branch.

The evening will conclude with a drinks reception and canapés. It is free to attend with donations to the CLA Charitable Trust (charity number: 280264). All places must be booked in advance (follow book tickets link).
