LWA was established in 2013 to provide a collective political voice for UK farmers, growers and woodland workers, to advance the principles of Food Sovereignty by strengthening their capacity to meet UK food, fuel and fibre needs.
It combines political campaigning with training and solidarity events. It now have 800 members across the UK and has established a strong political presence through its publications, meetings, and alliances.
As the UK prepares to leave the European Union, there is an opportunity to lobby the UK government to allocate significant funds to organic horticulture in its Post-Brexit Agricultural Policy. It has already formed a Horticulture Working Group, published a policy paper and started building relationships with other organisations to create a unified voice.
