You are cordially invited to join us as we begin to peer through a kaleidoscope of Agro-ecology, Permaculture, Wild Tending, Agro-forestry, Silvopasture and a storm of other alluring green-fingered sub-genres, each more arousing and oblique than the last. From the depths of Native American land management to the dizzying heights of scientific revelation, we’ll be searching for solutions to the adolescent blunder of industrial agriculture. We’ll skim the surface of the current predicament, and touch upon some of the promising solutions that are emerging from the vanguard of experimental agriculture and ecological thought. Through presentations, collaborative discussions and games, we’ll engage in a thoroughly amateur flirtation with the future of life on the land.
The weekend will be held at biochar pioneer Ed Revill’s farm near Swansea, and will include 2 work sessions, a biochar stove demonstration, and a talk by Ed about his work with soil and carbon. There will be fireside music and stories in the evenings.
