In Our Hands - Seeding Change

 

This one hour documentary takes you on a journey across the fields of Britain, past the orchards of forgotten fruit and through the fields of ancient grains. The film reveals both the wisdom of the old and the innovations of the young, who are bringing back the worm to the soil, the ‘culture’  to ‘agriculture,’ and the flavour to the tomato!

Watch the film and take part in online discussion 7:30pm – 9:00pm.
