Event description
Join Helen Browning – Organic Farmer and CEO of the Soil Association – to discuss organics, soil and the future of farming, with Q&A.

About this Event

Helen's 2018 book Pig set out the challenges for sustainable food production, but also hints at the practical changes which might provide a solution. These changes would have major implications not only in increasing the contentment of our rural communities but also potentially a step change in the contribution of more urban food production which would leave more land available for environmental protection and social enjoyment.

The event is organised by the Greenhouse Trust as part of the celebration of International Women's Day and to launch the 2019 contributions to its eARTh art exhibitions. The 2019 exhibitions are inspired by Clare Leighton's Calender Year, a set of 12 wood-engravings which recorded farming practices of the 1930's. The event and exhibition will explore some of the questions facing agriculture at this pivotal time for the global environment, juxtaposed against the images of agriculture presented by Claire Leighton: What has changed? What will change? How can we all engage with ensuring eco-agriculture plays a vital part in the climate change challenge?
