FarmWel 21 Dec 2016
FarmWelFarmWel aims to make mainstream agriculture sustainable in terms of the environment, people's livelihoods, and farm animal welfare. To combat climate change, we must transform our food systems. To fight obesity, we must improve food quality and improve our national diet. To restore soil quality and biodiversity, so that our land continues to feed us, we must farm with nature and not despite it. To reduce anti-microbial resistance and farm humanely we must get animals out of monoculture-dependent intensive systems. To protect communities from extreme weather, we must rethink the shape of our agricultural landscape. There is a rising fear amongst key policy-makers that the current model of volume-production agriculture is starting to fail, and yet there is little understanding of what the mainstream alternative could look like. This makes it extremely difficult for politicians to develop a policy narrative for progressive change. We urgently need coherent pathways to ensure economic resilience throughout the necessary transition. We need a systematic approach to adjustments in farm policy and to the funding of food production and land management. We should champion progressive change by food corporates just as much as we celebrate action by smaller businesses. We must make a direct appeal to young farmers to plan and produce for the future instead of repeating the cheap oil and subsidy-driven mistakes of the past. Using our Global Goals for Sustainable Agriculture we will help communicate good practice, build a robust case for change, and lobby politicians, industry, and other decision-makers to influence progress. In the UK, as we prepare to leave the European Union, decisions will be taken about the future shape of UK agriculture. Structures that govern food production will be reviewed and transposed for an independent Britain. This provides a unique opportunity to influence the shape of mainstream food production in a major economy. The time to lobby for change in Britain is now. This is perhaps our one chance to argue for substantial root and branch reform. If we can make progress at home, we may also be able to export knowledge and experience to other economies. Continuation funding would allow FarmWel to lobby UK MPs and Peers, to establish a small Parliamentary working group on sustainable agriculture, and to directly influence policy development as Britain prepares to leave the EU. Deliverables Policy • Identify sympathetic MPs and peers. • Lobby at least 50 MPs and peers directly. • Win active support (potential working group) for our sustainable farming goals from 8 MPs and 4 peers, from across the political spectrum, but with a particular emphasis on the Tories. • Urge MPs to submit questions, make speeches, and use other Parliamentary mechanisms. • One event at Portcullis House, sponsored by an MP, to promote sustainable mainstream farming (would not include refreshments, but this could be sponsored). • Develop relationships with like-minded organisations, e.g. RSPB; Conservative AWF. Communications • Gather sustainable farming-related news. • E-mail all MPs with a brief round-up of sustainable farming news once per week. • Use the CostainConsulting.com website to host information about FarmWel. • Use my Twitter handle to promote sustainable farming. Scotland • We would progress the FarmWel conversation in Scotland and work towards a round-table with industry and Scottish Government following the publication of their Climate Change Plan at the end of January 2017. Reporting and adjustment • A weekly progress report will be submitted to Ruth Layton by e-mail. • Policy messages and communications may be steered by Roland Bonney. • Ruth may require additional actions related to FarmWel’s objectives, for example, attendance at farm meetings. Timeline • Six months • 2 days per week Cost • £15,000 • For at least 52 days over the period • Plus expenses – travel from Scotland to Westminster/Oxford, and over-night subsistence, up to twice a month, for the duration of the project. Up to £3,000.

ArtWorks funding has been awarded to The Stove Network to undertake initial research towards developing an MA module in Environmental and Participative Practice. The Stove Network will work with an existing informal network of other place-based arts projects in Scotland and Wales as part of their research. As well as informing the longer term development of a MA module, they plan, though their engagement with other rural place based partners, to strengthen this informal grouping and share their research at the end of the process. This research will be jointly run with the University of West Scotland as their academic partner (pending match funding from the Innovation Voucher Scheme). This funding will enable The Stove Network the research the feasibility of developing a formal training offer as part of their longer term business plan. The Stove Network is an artist led collective based in a disused three story former shop in the town centre of Dumfries with a membership of circa 200 people ranging from international artists to emerging artists and students. Their core mission is about breathing new life into the town using art and creativity and actively involving local people. They are particularly interested in exploring how they can create a sustainable business model for both the building and the wider network. Part of this is exploring the feasibility of setting up an MA module that would be run through the Stove Network and provide academic institutions a residential course for students to study environmental and socially engaged practice. This would offer employment for their network members, bring new artists into the area to cross fertilize with the existing artist community and potentially offer a sustainable business model in the longer term.
