Our last online talk this spring will be on Tuesday April 5th at 7:30pm, when we are pleased to announce that Russ Carrington, Manager of the Regenerative Farming Project at Knepp Rewilding Estate will be talking about the work he and his colleagues are undertaking in setting up Knepp’s Regenerative Farm.

City Branch Chair, Anne Cottringer, who has previously made a film about young farmers in which Russ was one of the featured farmers, says:

‘Many of you will have heard of the Knepp Rewilding Project. Now you have a chance to hear first-hand about the Knepp Regenerative Farming Project in a City Branch talk by the head of the project – Herefordshire born Russ Carrington. How can nature recovery and the creation of habitat networks work in harmony with food production? How does regenerative farming build natural capital and what key ecological indicators are used to monitor that account? How does regenerative farming address the challenges of the future as farming subsidies undergo radical change? These are urgent questions for conservationists, ecologists, farmers and anyone who has an interest in our changing landscapes.’

A must for all those interested in a sustainable future for farming, food production and responsible land use. Please forward the details of this event on to your contacts.
