Through detailed interviews with three remarkable new farmers in the first year of their regenerative journey, industry experts and leading lights in the movement for change, Six Inches of Soil explores the connection between food and health, food poverty and affordability, the role of animals in the farming system, Britain’s hugely unequal system of land ownership, barriers to new entrant farmers especially from diverse backgrounds and whether there is a place for carbon offsetting on farms.
It brings to life what it feels like to farm agroecologically – to farm with authentic connection with the land, changing seasons and the environment, to produce food for people you know and care about in the local community: to spend your days with your hands in the soil.
Six Inches of Soil shows that agroecological farming is not simply a job, but a way to live values and engage in practices that not only nourish the planet but also the farmers themselves.
