This event is now full and bookings are closed.

The Prince of Wales’s Food and Farming Summer School has been held since 2007, initially at Duchy Home Farm, Tetbury and Highgrove and subsequently at the Royal Agricultural College, Cirencester. This year, we are honoured that His Royal Highness has invited the Organic Research Centre to organise the 2013 Food and Farming Summer School.

The summer school is inspired by The Prince of Wales’s leadership and keen interest over many years in environmental sustainability and the importance of supporting the wider farming community. The Prince of Wales has been personally involved in the development of the programme, with part of the summer school being held at Highgrove and Duchy Home Farm.

The summer school engages leading individuals from farming, food businesses, research, government and non-governmental organisations in addressing the challenges of producing sufficient food sustainably, to meet not just the requirements of current but also of future generations. It will seek to grapple with the complexity of the issues, providing unique insights in an integrated framework where biological systems, physical resources, economic realities and social, ethical and policy issues and perspectives are brought into contact with each other. The issues will be addressed by leading experts in a discursive approach, where they are not only presenting but also participating in discussions throughout the event.
