New resources launched for LEAF Open Farm Sunday hosts including new ticketing system

Ahead of LEAF Open Farm Sunday (10th June), organisers LEAF (Linking Environment And Farming) has launched a range of new resources and announced a new ticketing system to help farmers plan and control the size of their event. Once again LEAF are offering all host farmers a range of free promotional materials including posters, leaflets and flyers, branded polo shirts and hi-vis vests. To make ordering easier, farmers can order their printed resources in packs suitable for events of various sizes - small (up to 50 visitors), medium (50-250 visitors), or large (over 250 visitors).

The new free tick­et­ing sys­tem pro­vides a ful­ly flex­i­ble way to help farm­ers con­trol how many peo­ple, and who, vis­its their farm. Farm­ers will be pro­vid­ed with a web link at which they can upload details on their event and use to invite peo­ple. Farm­ers can also spec­i­fy the time of open­ing and include oth­er details such as car park­ing options. The tick­et­ing sys­tem will be free to use for all farm­ers reg­is­tered for LEAF Open Farm Sun­day and will go live in the next few weeks. 

LEAF Open Farm Sun­day Man­ag­er Annabel Shack­le­ton explains: We know that for many farm­ers not being able to con­trol the num­ber of peo­ple com­ing onto their farm can be a big bar­ri­er to tak­ing part in LEAF Open Farm Sun­day. The new sys­tem will pro­vide farm­ers with the peace of mind that they know who is com­ing onto their farm, and when – elim­i­nat­ing any ele­ment of the unknown and giv­ing farm­ers full con­trol of their event, whether large or small.’ 

LEAF will also be offer­ing a range of free posters high­light­ing the role of sci­ence and tech­nol­o­gy in farm­ing. Devel­oped with sup­port from BBSRC, the posters focus on top­ics such as soil, water and bio­di­ver­si­ty. Weath­er-proof options, posters in Welsh and an accom­pa­ny­ing hand­book will also be avail­able, as will free book­lets and posters for teachers.

New Oxford short-sleeve shirts and high-vis­i­bil­i­ty vests will be avail­able for farm­ers and oth­er mem­bers of staff to wear on the day. Avail­able in a range of sizes, the Oxford short sleeve shirts will be embroi­dered with the LEAF Open Farm Sun­day logo on the front right pock­et and are light blue in colour – so cer­tain to stand out. New flu­o­res­cent orange high-vis vests are brand­ed with the LEAF Open Farm Sun­day logo on the back. Orders for the Oxford shirts should be placed by 30 April to ensure they arrive in time for June 10th

In addi­tion to the new resources, farm­ers can find sup­port and tips in the LEAF Open Farm Sun­day hand­book and online at www​.farm​sun​day​.org. LEAF and its team of Region­al Co-ordi­na­tors are also always on hand to answer ques­tions and offer advice.
