In­spir­ing young peo­ple

Country Smallholding - - August News -

WORK needs to start now to in­spire young peo­ple to take up ca­reers in hor­ti­cul­ture and re­duce agri­cul­ture’s reliance on mi­grant labour in the face of Brexit, ac­cord­ing to a new Soil As­so­ci­a­tion re­port. The re­port urges the sec­tor to come to­gether to push for in­creas­ing gov­ern­ment sup­port for hor­ti­cul­ture via the up­com­ing Agri­cul­ture Bill, in par­tic­u­lar main­tain­ing the EU Fruit and Veg­etable Aid scheme which pro­vides sup­port to hor­ti­cul­tural pro­ducer or­gan­i­sa­tions.
