Learn about blossoming sector

Evesham Editorial 26th Sep, 2021   0

BUSINESS brains across Evesham and Pershore can discover more about the opportunities in agriculture and horticulture with an event at Pershore College.

The second part of a Festival of Horticulture takes place on Thursday (September 30) and will examine a range of hot topics including UK horticulture production in a post-Brexit world and the latest digital innovations which are currently transforming farming, food production and growing.

A total of 10 speakers will talk about a range of subjects including the latest in indoor growing systems, drones and surveying technologies and the potential opportunities in horticulture for UK businesses now that we have left the European Union.

The event, organised by the college’s GrowAgri project, is open to all interested parties and attendees will also get to see the latest indoor growing technology from the USA.

The Harvest Wall, designed by Rick Langille of Harvest Today is a unique indoor growing wall that allows both individuals and organisations to grow their own fresh salad crops.

Rick is flying in from the US to present his invention especially for the event along with his British business partner Mark Chatfield.
