Funding real farming – where’s the money?

A review of the funding environment for our sector and what the future holds 

As grant funding becomes harder and harder to find, this session will look at what other options are available for funding enlightened agriculture. We’ll review what has been happening in the equity, community shares, crowdfunding, lending and grants arenas over the past 12 months and look at what opportunities there are going forward. 

Experts from each of these funding areas will review their sector and there will then be an opportunity for questions and debate.
