We’re appealing!

Can you help us raise £50,000 by October?

We know organic farming can make a positive impact, for farmers, environment and society. With more research, and better communication of knowledge, we believe it can do even better. ORC is working hard to deliver this. We’re growing fast, with more funded projects than ever before. We have ambitious plans to develop our resources and new initiatives. But we still need your financial help. Two years ago, we asked for £100,000 to get through a challenging financial period – you helped us meet the target and we’re moving forward again. Last year, we launched a policy appeal to help with all the work we are doing with Defra, the European Commission and others – you again came up with the goods, donating over £25,000. We’d like to say a big thank you for this help. This time, we want to build on that success, supporting pilot research projects and PhDs, better communications through our publications and websites, new training initiatives and bursaries, as well as improved facilities at Elm Farm and Wakelyns.

We’ve started the work – please help us raise the funds we need to progress it. Support us
