Event details

Abstract

With so many demands on our rural landscapes, how do we balance the needs of ourselves with those of the natural environment. 70% of the country is in some form of agriculture, some productive, some less so. Change is paramount, but can we afford to wait? Will we be able to overcome the cultural and social aspects of land use change for the benefit of future generations?

Exeter Food Research Network are pleased to invite you to a talk by Jake Fiennes, Director of Conservation at the Holkham Estate, Norfolk and author of Land Healer: How Farming Can Save Britain’s Countryside.

Join us on Thursday 22 February at 18:30 in the Alumni Auditorium- the Forum, Streatham Campus, University of Exeter, EX4 4PT. Please register here to attend.

 

The talk will also be accessible via Zoom for those unable to attend in person. Please indicate this when you register.

 

Prior to the talk, there will be a food market on Forum Street featuring a range of local food producers. We will be in contact with more information about this closer to the event.
