Dirty Business: the farmer, the social pioneer and the conservationist – Review

Phil Haughton, MD and chair of the evening
Photo of Dirty Business, the talk about  organic hosted at Better Food.
Our in house talk in September was a huge success and an absolute delight to be part of. Our guests (Garth Clark, Yeo Valley Farm’s MD, Lee Holdstock, Soil Association’s Trade Manager and Andy Dibben, Head Grower at The Community Farm), wove their stories together in a fascinating way, sharing their vast array of experience and knowledge. It was an inspiring evening.

We called it Dirty Business in deference to the soil.  The farmer – Garth, organic sceptic, turned convert; the social pioneer – Andy, lifelong farmer and believer in social justice in the countryside; and the conservationist – Lee, who came to work at the Soil Association because of concerns about the environment.

If you missed it, we filmed the evening and the edited highlights will be on our website soon.
