About the Event
What will farms need to look like and how will they need to adapt to survive the inevitable consequences of a rapidly changing climate in an increasingly unpredictable market?
We are delighted to invite Nick Gates and Benedict Macdonald to FarmED for a screening of Save Our Wild Isles: Hungry for Change, followed by a talk about their vision for the future of farming Farming 2050. The evening will incorporate regenerative examples from around the country, looking at biodiversity, soil and mycorrhizal recovery, carbon sequestration and water strategy. They will also touch on ELMs, natural capital, carbon and nutrient markets. There will be plenty of time for questions and discussion, and we hope you will leave feeling hopeful for the future.
Nick Gates is a naturalist, producer, director and author. As well as being a producer/director on BBC Wild Isles, Nick also directed the #SaveOurWildIsles 'Hungry for Change' film about our food and farming system. He is a campaigner for land use that works better for nature and people and is passionate about overcoming nature illiteracy by getting nature into our National Curriculum.
Benedict Macdonald is a lifelong naturalist and author, who, after a successful career as a television director for shows such as David Attenborough’s Our Planet, is now the CEO of Restored Land Ltd, where he works to help landowners restore land to nature, whether in the wilder or farmed environment. His first book, Rebirding, was the inaugural winner of the Wainwright Prize for Global Conservation, and has helped many farmers on their own journeys of ecological restoration on their land.
Nick and Benedict co-authored the award winning book "Orchard - A Year In England's Eden".
