Farming for the future

May 9, 2009

Mark Norman, one of Camel Community Supported Agriculture’s three expert growers, recommends that we all catch up on the BBC2 documentary A Farm for the Future if we haven’t watched it already.

It tells the story of a small South Devon farm that has been in the same family for seven generations.  The film was made by Rebecca Hosking, an environmentalist and wildlife film-maker, who grew up on the farm.

Rebecca explains what made her decide to return and transform it into a low energy farm for the future. She discovered that the key lay in nature and the principles of permaculture.

Rebecca Hosking’s film should be an inspiration to those of us who have chosen to get together to grow our own food.

Watch this video clip when she investigates how much fossil fuel is used in the making of a sandwich bought from a garage.
