Our global and local field
Over 10 Saturdays, we will unearth the role of soil in our ecology and question how best to graze the grass and farm protein. We will unpack the impact of our industrialised food system on our daily bread, our nutrition and health. We will grapple with the big numbers and small actions on carbon emissions and food waste. We will assess our impact on our fellow species, whether they be walking, swimming or flying, and imagine how to better use our land.
This first day will examine our global, European and Scottish fields, explore our current food system and it's impact on climate change, and better understand the state of our current food security and potential. In the afternoon we will visit our real 2000m2 field on the farm and find out what we have been growing.
PLEASE NOTE – Our Field of Enquiry Team has a limited number of members. You can attend individual sessions, but priority places will be reserved for people who can attend the whole programme. This ticket registers your interest in becoming a member of the Field of Enquiry Team, but in order to secure a place, please tell us a bit about yourself.
Email email@example.com and, in no more than 100 words, let us know - your key areas of interest; any relevant groups or associations you belong to and would hope to influence, and the first question you would like our Field of Enquiry to explore. Deadline 19 September. Decision by 23 September.
