How it works

There are three key steps to turning a research idea into a tested approach to sustainable farming.

  1. Farmers meet in small groups to test and develop new tools and techniques in practical ‘field labs’.

  2. The network matches each group with a co-ordinator and a researcher. They offer professional support, and help the group access the research funding.

  3. The co-ordinator shares the group’s learning through this website where groups can track their progress and compare notes.
