Quilter Cheviot media event
This week Richard gave a presentation of the Growing Underground farm for the Quilter Cheviot media event announcing their sponsorship of the upcoming Countryfile Live 2017 event. There wasn’t meant to be a Q&A session afterwards but one soon erupted as the brains of the inquisitive audience were fired by the sustainability of our farm, its role in future food production and no doubt it’s location too! Soon followed a mingling session where delightful canapés were served accompanied by a sommelier who held a mini wine tasting. Richard reluctantly obliged of course! 😉
The Countryfile Live 2017 event will be held at the stunning Blenheim Palace from 3 – 6 August. Hosted by Countryfile presenter, Joe Crowley other speakers include; Candice Brown, Great British Bake Off Winner 2016, Alastair Griffiths from Royal Horticultural Society, Simon Reeve travel adventurer and TV presenter, the John Craven and of course our very own Richard Ballard! You can view the full list here.
There’s a whole host of other activities at the event too such as archery, tree climbing, canoe rides, cuddle guinea pigs or pet regular pigs, an ‘amazing birds and beasts’ area so it really is a great family day out. We also hear there will also be some awesome shopping, debates, live music, food and bars! Everything is included in one ticket but do remember to also book the speaker you want to see so you have a space reserved. If you would like to come and have Richard boggle your brain with underground farming, future tech and future food on Sunday 6 August click here. We look forward to seeing you! 🙂
