Sunday 8th November 7-9.30pm, Lansdown Hall: The Film Symphony of the Soil and Discussion

[dropcap]S[/dropcap]oils are essential to the ecosystems on which we rely – yet the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organisation estimates that a third of all soils are degraded – due to erosion, compaction, salinization, nutrient depletion, acidification, pollution and other processes caused by unsustainable land management. At this event, Transition Stroud explores these issues and solutions – and the role soils could play in climate change – with presentations from local organisations, films, and plenty of time for discussion.
Amanda Godber of Down to Earth, Lesley Green of Bisley Community Composting, Helen Patel a permaculture gardener will speak. Gabriel Kaye of the Biodynamic Land Trust will speak about how biodynamics regenerates and enlivens soil, as well as about Hammonds Farm plans.
