Change of director for Elm Farm

On 31 May 2010, Lawrence Woodward OBE stepped down as Director of the Organic Research Centre, Elm Farm, one of the partners in OCW. He is succeeded by Prof. Nic Lampkin (pictured), former Director of OCW, who has been joint Director with Lawrence since February 2009.

Lawrence Woodward has played a pivotal role in the Organic Research Centre since it was founded over 30 years ago, putting it at the forefront of the development of the organic movement and sector both in the UK and internationally. Nic Lampkin said: I am following in Lawrence's footsteps with some trepidation, conscious of his legacy and the many personal relationships that he has developed over the years, and aware that my more formal academic background doesn't make up fully for his creative intellectual flair. I know that Lawrence will continue to support the work of the Organic Research Centre as we continue to build a truly sustainable and equitable farming and food system.
