Sustainable Soils Alliance Fundraising Online Auction

We’re looking forward to our fundraising evening tonight at Yeo Valley HQ in Somerset, where over 100 guests are expected to join us to help raise money for the SSA’s activities. As part of our fundraising campaign, we’re excited to also announce an online auction that will be taking place over the next two weeks, with a host of wonderful prizes up for grabs!
The SSA is extremely grateful to all the businesses who have donated prizes and sponsored tables, including Yeo Valley, Weleda, Triodos, Greenhouse, Osbourne Clarke and Riverford. 

The money raised will contribute to help us raise soil’s political profile and convene experts to devise solutions to the complex technical, practical and legal challenges that need to be addressed to see our soils properly protected for generations to come.  See below for a full list of prizes, and please share with your soil-friendly networks!
