Nature Connection and Re-wilding: A Solution to Eating Well – Brain Feast Session

This panel is about renewing our personal connection with nature. How does taking a step closer to nature impact our food choices, the ingredients we gather, the depths to which we appreciate what we bring to the table, and to what extent we consider the origins, seasonality and alchemy of our food? Connecting with nature can bring us better respect for the planet and what the planet can provide for us, an essential understanding for the years ahead.

Host Julian Baggini, philosopher and author of recent title How the World Thinks, speaks with panelists Steve England, Phil Haughton, Tim Martin and Ian Barrett. Steve England is a Bristol-based conservation educator, horticulturist and historian who has worked in Stoke Park Estate for over 40 years. England collaborated with Avon Wildlife Trust on the ‘My Wild City Project’ and has been widely praised for his work engaging the public in positive outdoor learning. Phil Haughton is the Founder of the Better Food Company and co-founder of Bristol’s Community Farm. Phil continues to facilitate ways to enable people from all walks of life to connect with where their food comes from and the importance of organic farming in protecting our wild life habitats. Tim Martin is the founder of Farm Wilder CIC and an Executive Producer in Natural History Television. Farm Wilder CIC is a social enterprise sourcing and marketing wildlife-friendly food in the UK. Ian Barrett is Chief Executive of Avon Wildlife Trust, the largest local charity working to protect wildlife in the West of England. Avon Wildlife Trust cares for 36 nature reserves and works with countryside landowners in the countryside, to create Living Landscapes.
