The way in which we produce food is having profound impacts on the earth’s climate, biodiversity and ecosystems. And unhealthy diets aren’t just harming the environment, they are affecting our own physical wellbeing too. How can policymakers square the competing demands of sustainability, price and nutrition?
Thomasina Miers urges us to kickstart the shift to regenerative farming by increasing the proportion of publicly procured ingredients for schools and hospitals grown through regenerative means. In conversation with Alan Rusbridger, Editor of Prospect Magazine, Thomasina joined us to dive deeper into the role of regenerative farming and its potential to improve the nation’s health while providing an effective response to climate change.
Thomasina and Alan discussed this bold proposal alongside Tara Garnett, Director of TABLE, and Tom Martin, farmer and Prospect columnist, to explore opportunities and challenges and confront hard questions.
