About The Event

The soil beneath our feet is our most precious resource – it feeds us and stores incredible amounts of carbon, water and life.  Sadly, many of our soils are not in good health leading to erosion, flooding, yield reductions and carbon losses. 

But there is hope! 

Regenerative agriculture has the potential to rebuild soil, enhance biodiversity, and improve water and nutrient cycling.  We can capture carbon in the soil and aboveground biomass – helping to reverse the current global trends of atmospheric greenhouse gas accumulation. A regenerative approach produces a more diverse range of more nutrient dense foods and can lead to lower inputs and higher profits.

During this talk you will hear about regenerative agriculture from Jonty Brunyee, Head of Sustainable Farming and Food Systems at FarmED – The Centre of Farm and Food Education in the Cotswolds. FarmED aims to be at the heart of local, regional and global agroecological transition, working to inspire, educate and connect people to build sustainable farming and food systems that nourish people and regenerate the planet. Jonty is also an award winning agroecologiocal farmer and a Nuffield Scholar.
