This follows last year’s announcement that we were appointed for the website build of their Cool Food Pro Carbon Reduction programme.
Simon Givens, Head of Information Technology at the Soil Association has said about our partnership so far: "Great working with you guys. Outstanding engagement and great focus on successful and inclusive delivery. We are looking forward to our ongoing relationship."
Read on to find out more about this exciting new project.
Who is the Soil Association?
The Soil Association is the charity that digs deeper to transform the way we eat, farm and care for our natural world.
Their desire is to live in a world in balance with nature and aspire to a future with good health and a safe climate. In order to achieve that, their mission is to help everyone to understand and explore the vital relationship between the health of soil, plants, animals and people.
Campaigning, educating and helping everyone to grow better together is all part of their ongoning mission and they are a lead partner in several programmes working directly with communities to deliver positive change in food and farming, including: Innovative Farmers, Sustainable Food Places, Food For Life Get Togethers and more.
What is the Innovative Farmers programme?
Innovative Farmers is a programme managed by the Soil Association to support farmers to research sustainable innovation on their farms. The programme enables farmers to investigate solutions by linking them up with the research community to set up research projects known as ‘field labs’. There have been 120 field labs since the launch in 2012 and there are around 15-20 field labs happening at any one time.
The website has traditionally been used for the following purposes:
The Soil Association have approached us to help them establish Innovative Farmers as the place to go for practical, free information on sustainable farming techniques and we’re excited to work with them over to develop and build a website that will go live later in the year.
Prior to site go-live, the key outputs of this project include:
We look forward to sharing future updates about projects with the Soil Association.
