YFC members can apply for a funded ticket to Groundswell 2024

YFC members, aged 18-30, can apply for fully funded tickets to this year’s Groundswell Festival on 26-27 June 2024 at Lannock Manor Farm in North Hertfordshire.

The event is for farmers, growers, policymakers, foodies, or anyone interested in food production and the environment to learn about regenerative farming systems and the importance of healthy soil.

The tickets are being funded through the How Farming Can Cool the Planet Project, which brings together students, young farmers and FLAME, the youth branch of the Landworkers Alliance. The project has involved attending farm visits and events, sharing views and ideas on food, farming, climate and nature.

The project will cover the cost of a two-day ticket, reasonable travel costs, and lunch on both days (saving around £200 per person).

Accommodation costs, and additional food/drinks will need to be paid for by the participant – although there is the chance to win £100 in a social media competition for those who attend the event through the project.

Camping on site is available for 25, 26 and 27 June for a total of £30. Other accommodation options are also listed on the Groundswell website. Attendees are responsible for organising and paying for their own accommodation, as well as getting to and from the event from their accommodation.

Closing date for applications is Monday 20 May 2024.

For further details, please apply here giving your reasons for consideration. You will then be advised if your application has been successful.
