    Groundswell: At the regenerative farming revolution

    There's a quiet revolution happening on farms across the UK - a move to more nature-based practices, and none other than at Groundswell, the UK's biggest regen farming festival.

    Taking place last week, it saw thousands of farmers, estate owners, food campaigners, community gardeners, policy makers, researchers, organisations and companies rubbing shoulders over two days at John and Paul Cherry’s farm in Hertfordshire. More than 150 talks and demo sessions covered everything from signs of soil health and agro-forestry walks, to the business case for regen farming, and the politics of making it all happen. Jez Fredenburgh was there and caught up with a few farmers and advisors to see what they made of it.
