Good Food for Everyone, Forever – Colin Tudge

Rory Spowers in discussion with writer and biologist Colin Tudge, exploring the potential for regenerative farming systems to feed the world, restore biodiversity and combat climate change.
Many of us assume that a food system built upon increasingly mechanised monocultures, reliant on fossil fuels, chemicals inputs and genetic modification, is necessary to feed the world. However, some argue that there is increasing evidence to the contrary – that we can feed the expanding global population with healthy nutritious food, while simultaneously restoring wildlife and biodiversity to our landscape, health to our soil, air and water, plus mitigate climate change by sequestering carbon in the soil through regenerative farming practices. In discussion with The Re-Generation founder Rory Spowers, writer and biologist Colin Tudge will expand on his ideas behind an Enlightened Agriculture, explaining how a reversal of the current trend, towards networks of small and medium-sized diversified farms, can systemically solve so many global crises – from topsoil erosion and biodiversity loss to climate change itself.
