Insurance is a concern for many of our members - have you got the right level of cover, are you paying too much, what does your cover even mean? Experienced and specialist insurance broker, McClarrons. will take the lead for the morning session talking delegates through the journey of securing the right insurance and explaining the wide array of products available - making sure you have the right level of cover and understand why. They will also offer a surgery where you can ask questions about your specific situation and needs.

Insurance doesn't negate the importance of good risk management, so the afternoon will be spent looking at examples and templates to build your confidence to effectively manage risk on your garden or farm.

"Grow Cardiff heard about McClarrons insurance through Social Farms & Gardens - without that contact we would never have known and we would have missed out!

The service was extremely efficient, thorough and professional. We work across multiple sites and had an arson attack and break in, last year, so there was quite a lot of information to go through, but throughout, the staff were super helpful, friendly and kept everything simple.

We ended up with better cover than we'd had and saved over a £100 pounds, which for a small charity like us, means a lot. A big thank you to McClarrons and Social Farms & Gardens!"
