The Charity helped to establish and has ongoing involvement in the Soil Association Land Trust. The Land Trust is a charity in its own right, charity number 1121011, established to acquire and maintain farmland sustainably and to connect the public with land stewardship.
The Soil Association’s expertise is in ever greater demand and the growing fundraising team is rising to the challenge of accessing the resources to enable us to meet this interest. Corporate Partnerships have been going from strength to strength, the team having recently landed several high-profile, exciting partnerships. We work with colleagues across the organisation and a wide range of different companies, discussing healthy school food at one moment and the impact of soil health on climate change the next. The role gives the opportunity to learn from the wider fundraising team and make a vital contribution to it’s success.
