Sustainable growing methods eligible for reward in memory of former LEAF CE.
UK POTATO growers are being invited to compete to be the first recipient of The Caroline Drummond Award - Celebrating and Communicating Farming Excellence.
Set up in memory of former LEAF Chief Executive, Caroline Drummond MBE, who led LEAF (Linking Environment And Farming) for more than 30 years, the award will recognise an individual who personifies her passion and drive to advance more sustainable farming and communicating that to their peers, the wider food chain and the public.
As well as LEAF, the award is supported by The British Guild of Agricultural Journalists and The Institute of Agricultural Management, both of which Caroline had a close involvement with.
LEAF Vice Chairman Cedric Porter said: “Caroline had a passion for improving the way the world farms and protects the environment and for sharing that message to as wide an audience as possible. This award means that others with that passion can be recognised for what they do.”
