The new LOFS Ambassador role is for someone who loves taking part in LEAF Open Farm Sunday and talking about it! Primarily it’s about helping to build our community of LOFS farmers – sharing ideas, answering questions, helping to promote LOFS and being one of 7 ambassadors for LOFS across Britain

LEAF Open Farm Sun­day (LOFS) is farming’s annu­al open day. Man­aged by LEAF (Link­ing Envi­ron­ment And Farm­ing), with sup­port from lead­ing food and farm­ing organ­i­sa­tions, hun­dreds of farm­ers across Britain open their gates to the pub­lic to dis­cov­er the world of farm­ing, food pro­duc­tion and all that it encompasses. 

2020 events saw LOFS take to the screen with LEAF Online Farm Sun­day! It has proved huge­ly suc­cess­ful and is some­thing we plan to devel­op with the sup­port from a new team of LOFS Ambassadors.

All LOFS activ­i­ty aims to build trust and under­stand­ing in food and farm­ing, put farm­ing back in the heart of com­mu­ni­ties and be great PR for British agriculture.

The role:

The new LOFS Ambas­sador role is for some­one who loves tak­ing part in LEAF Open Farm Sun­day and talk­ing about it!

For this part time role (approx. 5 days a year), we are look­ing for an enthu­si­as­tic, approach­able and proud ambas­sador of LEAF Open Farm Sun­day; a good com­mu­ni­ca­tor, con­fi­dent using tech­nol­o­gy, social media and pro­mot­ing events. A social pres­ence is desired but not essential.

  • You will be offered resources nec­es­sary to effec­tive­ly look after your region.

Spe­cif­ic require­ments will vary depend­ing on the indi­vid­ual and the area. The main aim is to con­tin­ue to make LOFS an ongo­ing suc­cess, build­ing on achieve­ments year on year.
