Moulton land agent Hugh Baker, Nicola Hay of Caudwell Farms at Holbeach St Matthews, Sarah Worth of A H Worth & Co Ltd of Holbeach Hurn, Jo Strawson of Moulton Eaugate, Jo Martin, and Matthew Naylor of Naylor Flowers at Moulton Seas End are on The Mud Hut Ball organising committee.
Some of them have travelled to East Africa and seen the work of Farm Africa at first hand.
Matthew, who supports Farm Africa, says it helps to teach subsistence farmers to produce better crops.
He explains that helping them produce disease resistant crops means that farmers are better able to withstand difficulties such as the rainy season arriving late.
He says: “It’s about food security and getting women involved in farming.”
