Catching up with Future Growers apprentices

Rachel Harries: This weekend I’m off to Abbey Home Farm, an 800 hectare organic oasis in the Cotswolds. I’ll be meeting up with nine of our Future Growers, who are learning some of the techniques and approaches needed to produce fruit and veg for the growing organic market. We’ve been running this programme now for eight years and have seen over 50 new organic growers dip their hands in the soil and step onto their own organic journey, so I thought it might be a good time to look back at what some of them have gone on to.
