How do we create a dynamic agriculture that produces high-quality products at reasonable cost to consumers, yet provides wealth for farmers, and regenerates soil and nature? You are part of the answer!
When we, as consumers, make informed choices about what we eat and wear, we can actually change the story of the soil, water, and biodiversity of the British Isles.
Daniela Howell, CEO of Savory Institute explains:
'We all play a part, through the choices of what we eat, to send a signal to the marketplace. We want to eat a product that regenerates our soil, our climate, and our social fabric. The same with what we wear. This is what we'll be exploring and unveiling in the conversations we'll have at this gathering.'
You see, every family needs a farmer, and likewise, every farmer needs many families to support them in regenerating soil and nature.
Our aim with this global conference is to bring together innovative farmers, consumers, and companies to support each other in laying the foundation for the remaking of the meat, dairy, wool and leather supply chains into a regenerative supply ecosystem. In so doing, we meet the needs of today's world, whilst influencing the future.
Regenerative farmers Graham Harvey and Rebecca Hosking open the day, followed by case studies and workshops on quality food and fibre for a healthy lifestyle, and a novel approach to farmer succession through 'land partnerships'.
We preview a 2017 programme, that verifies products are made from regenerating soil, offers farmers better access to markets, and likewise, helps manufacturers and consumers gain access to regenerative raw materials and products.
Dinner and keynote speaker end the day.
