    Abby Rose is Physicist and further studied nuclear and particle physics for her masters, and has now become a leading voice in a new dawn in farming. A farmer and soil health advocate, Abby was named one of 50 New Radicals by The Guardian and Nesta in 2018 for her work developing simple apps that help build ecology, profitability and beauty on farms around the world.


    Five years ago, -founded the award-winning British podcast, Farmerama Radio, as a way for farmers to share their experiences and ideas in creating a more ecological farming future. The monthly show has quickly become a leading voice in the global regenerative movement, highlighting the positive role farmers play in determining the future of the earth and its people.
