The James Hutton Institute hosts a number of events for members of the public, the farming and agriculture industry, policy makers, food manufacturers, marketers, land managers and land users.

We also exhibit at festivals and events throughout the UK, providing information to the general public through displays, activities and dialogue. These exhibits are supported by hands-on activities, knowledge exchange and the provision of leaflets and handouts for both children and adults.
