From 22nd to 29th April the Organic Research Centre (ORC) is taking part in the Green Match Fund Campaign 2022, organised by the Big Give – the UK’s biggest online match funding platform, to raise funds to further their work. During the campaign week, 22-29 April, all donations made to the ORC through theBigGive.org.uk will be doubled.
No-one is more aware of climate change than the farming community. Unseasonal weather having an adverse impact on crops is almost an annual occurrence, but intensive farming techniques are part of the problem – 10% of the EU’s total greenhouse gas emissions are linked to agriculture. If we are to feed ourselves and save the planet, something has to change.
ORC aims to enable that change. It is working to expand nature friendly farming in the UK by providing farmers with science-based evidence and practical guides to demonstrate that they can change how they farm the land and still run a successful business. A business that could become a positive force towards climate change.
