Dishing the Dirt: The Truth Beneath Our Soils – Brain Feast Session

While Michael Gove warns us that the UK is only 30-40 years away from eradication of soil fertility,  we are asking ‘can there really only be 100 harvests left in our soil?’
What part does soil play in food production? How can we use it with care? Is it possible to reverse the damage done already to reinstate balance? Join the conversation with Charles Dowding, the leading name in no-dig gardening, Abi Aspen Glencross of Duchess Grains and Sustainable Food Story, and Nick Saltmarsh of Hodmedod’s, the provider of British pulses and grains working with UK farmers to source fair and sustainable products. Be prepared to dig deep and examine your own relationship with the earth beneath your feet.
More speakers will also be announced soon.
