FCCT is a not-for-profit organisation (Community Interest Company, registration number 07220963) set up by Adam Twine and Chris Walford in April 2010.
It currently has four directors and hopes to appoint more directors around the UK as it grows.
There is no membership and although FCCT is principally aimed at farmers and growers, anyone is welcome to sign up to receive free newsletters and other information periodically.
FCCT is currently run on a shoe string budget (approximately £10,000/year, which comes out of the lease payments from Westmill wind farm) and a load of voluntary time and energy put in by farmers and growers around the country.
We have been extremely fortunate to have been awarded project funding from the Esmee Fairbairn Foundation to be able to reach out to more farmers and growers around two key themes, creating a demonstration farm network and the soil carbon project. The funding from these two projects will allow us to widen our impact, grow our network and achieve more on the ground action!
If you would like to get involved or support FCCT in anyway – we would be pleased to hear from you.
