  • Friday’s Farm for The Future Film Night

    Posted on March 18th, 2012 Steve No comments

    Thank you to everyone who turned up on Friday night to see and discuss the ‘Farm for the Future’ film by Rebecca Hoskings.

    A Farm for the FutureThis fascinating film gives an overview of how reliant modern farming practices (and food in general) are on abundant fossil fuels, and what alternatives there are. Although the film is over three years old now, we are not the only group interested in this film, as the Devon Wildlife Trust held a similar event in Kilmington Village Hall, near Axminster the night before (where Rebecca Hosking attended the event).

    After the film and a short break for refreshments, we held a discussion of the subjects raised by the film. Our Garden Share and Community Composting projects were mentioned, along with the Nature’s Round Co-op and a number of other issues.

    As time was running out the subject of mulching using brushwood that has been faggotted and dried was raised. Watch this space, as we are hoping to arrange a workshop on this subject in the near future!

    Thanks again to everyone who attended, and especially to the BTT members who helped to set up, run and tidy up after the event.
