Hereby some pictures, of the team, enjoying their time during lecture we gave in Oxford during the last conference of the ORFC last 4-5th January. It was great fun to answer and discuss the potential and scalability of bio-fertilisers.

The room was more than full. People sitting on the floor, standing everywhere, filling all gaps. There were more than 65 souls on the room and at least other 20 people could not get in the lecture room. Inside, waiting for us to start, we could see a lot of expectation in the faces of the participants. They all wanted to see what bio-fertilizers are, how are they made and what they can do for the soil, the plant and the farmer. Our goal was simple: to inspire, inform and entertain the participants with new fresh and useful information about a new way to look at organic agriculture.
Matt Dunwell chaired the lecture and introduced us and kept track on the time and questions. We divided the presentation in three parts:
- JuanFran brilliantly explained the working principles of the bio-fertilizers and presented the current research he is carrying at Ragman’s Farm.
- In a top-speed workshop, JuanFran explained the receipt of a basic bio-fertilizer while I was mixing ingredients into a small jar.
- I explained the practical applications of the bio-fertilizer and the many experiences we are having with farmers around the globe.
The session was planned for 1 hour but questions kept coming. After the lecture, doors went open and some people went out but many other people got in as we were still answering questions.
Thanks to Juanfran, Matt and the rest of the Ragman’s Farm team and the volunteers and participants for the interesting questions.
