Poland – Chance or Challenge
Do you fancy a trip with a difference?
The Under 40s Fruit Growers Conference lets you experience cutting edge developments in the fruit growing world alongside light-minded young people from the industry. Every two years there’s an overseas visit and we spend 3 days visiting growers somewhere interesting and seeing firsthand what their techniques are and how we could make use of them in UK.
In 2013, from the 6th of March till the 9th, we’ll be off to Poland. You could be with us!
The visits will include: soft fruit and top fruit growers, the Polish Horticultural Research Institute, plant breeders and propagators, plant nurseries, processing factory and others
Earlier this year, thanks to our sponsor, Fresca Group, we managed to secure a tour of Thanet Earth. This opportunity gave us the chance to get together a number of young people working in the industry and introducing them to the cutting-edge technology at Thanet, as well as to the Under 40s Conference history and future plans. It was a chance to meet the committee members and also to do some networking and meet open minded young horticulturists.
We will keep you updated with more details on the visits in the near future.
