Somerset network leader Sue Padfield from Fosse Farm was proud to represent WiRE recently whilst attending the official LEAF launch of Open Farm Sunday in the House of Commons. Lord de Mauley Under-Secretary for Environment, food and rural affairs, spoke highly of ambitious plans to see 250,000 members of the public on local farms June 7th 2015.
Sue said ” I encourage WiRE members connected with food farming and rural crafts to seek out opportunities to showcase their businesses using www.openfarmsunday.org. It was also very encouraging to hear several women at Westminster had already heard great reviews of WiRE training or the WiRE annual conference”
