Caroline Drummond, MBE, 24th June 1963 — 23rd May 2022.

Tributes have poured in following the very sad news that LEAF’s Chief Executive for over 30 years, Caroline Drummond MBE passed away on Monday 23rd May after a very short illness. A force of nature, a visionary, and a champion for more sustainable farming, Caroline or ‘CD’ as she was known to so many, tirelessly championed the development and uptake of more sustainable, regenerative farming. She was also passionate about bridging the gap between farmers and the public.

Car­o­line led LEAF from the very begin­ning in 1991 when it was first formed, and for over 30 years has been the dri­ving force behind the char­i­ty, which has grown from its hum­ble begin­nings to the glob­al­ly recog­nised and respect­ed organ­i­sa­tion it is today.

One of her most shin­ing lega­cies will be estab­lish­ing and dri­ving for­wards farming’s annu­al open day, LEAF Open Farm Sun­day (LOFS), which, for the five years pre-Covid, pos­i­tive­ly impact­ed on over half a mil­lion peo­ple each year. Car­o­line loved to vis­it LOFS events, to meet host farm­ers and their helpers, to hear their LOFS sto­ries and to wit­ness their ener­gy and enthu­si­asm, and vis­i­tors’ joy and gratitude.
