The Organic Centre Wales (OCW) partnership of Organic Research Centre, ADAS and Aberystwyth University have been successful in their bid to deliver ‘Organic Advisory Services‘ to the Welsh Government from 2013-2015.
A major focus of the work will be the development of the new Welsh organic farming scheme. OCW is starting by collect information from stakeholders to assess the experiences of the current organic scheme and identify issues that will need to be addressed in any future scheme and looking forward to continuing discussions at the Royal Welsh. Based on this, proposals for the new scheme will be developed and put out to consultation in the autumn.
During the next few months Welsh organic producers and others will become more aware of OCW’s revived activities at the Royal Welsh Show and the Winter Fair, visiting the OCW website and enjoy the updates in future editions of the new Cymru Organig magazine and e-bulletin. OCW will also be running its annual producer survey again in the autumn.
