    Regenerative oceans

    Regenerative oceans

    Regenerative agriculture has captured the imagination of producers and citizens around the world.  But the focus is almost exclusively on land.  In this programme we ask whether regenerative farming principles can be transposed to the ocean - and if so, at what scale?

    Featuring Dylan Walker, chief executive of the World Cetacean Alliance, and Alex Tomlinson, a vet and regenerative agriculture specialist.

    Regen agriculture for kids - The #Homeschool podcast

    Regen agriculture for kids

    Farm Gate has gone all #homeschool.  In this short programme we explain the basics of regenerative agriculture for primary school age kids.  We answer questions about the sun, the rain, dandelions and cow poo - and we ask what's the most important animal in the world?  There are even a couple of experiments you can try at home.

    The programme features Alex Tomlinson - an amazing mine of information who's working on regenerative farming projects right across Britain.

    Mass mobilisation, coronavirus & climate change

    Mass mobilisation, coronavirus & climate change

    Coronavirus has generated a monumental response. Political parties philosophically opposed to the Big State have intervened in our lives to an enormous extent.

    What can we learn from the way that coronavirus has been communicated and the speed of society's response?  How can we apply this knowledge to other public health emergencies, such as climate change and biodiversity loss, which also threaten the existence of human society as we know it.

    This programme features Jason Wojciechowski, Creative Director at Corelab and a Senior Fellow at the Center for Impact Communication, and Øistein Thorsen, director of FAI Farms.

Insightful, Inspiring, Educational

Just listened to the episode on Regenerative Agriculture and wish the entire podcast could be about this - so inspiring, thoughtful, and encouraging. Clearly looked at the issues and offered real world solutions.
Also fairly impressed that they were able to talk to the ‘Conservative Environmental Network’ without falling about laughing (or weeping) at the irony. But the interviewer kept their cool and it was useful to hear how the ruling class justifies itself to itself.
All round, really good stuff….
