LEAF Network

The LEAF Network consists of LEAF Demonstration Farms, working farms committed to delivering and promoting sustainable farming practices and LEAF Innovation Centres - research establishments pioneering new approaches to push forward the boundaries of Integrated Farm Management (IFM) through research and development.

Facilitating knowledge generation and exchange

These sites proudly demonstrate sustainable farming through Integrated Farm Management to a wide range of groups, through hosting walks and talks. They also contribute to LEAF resources to help spread technical IFM expertise.
