Six Inches of Soil

Thu 23 May

Jesus College

Join the Intellectual Forum for a screening of "Six Inches of Soil", the first full-length campaigning documentary that tells the untold story of the UK's regenerative and agroecology movement and its benefits to soil.

The film follows three new farmers on the first year of their regenerative journey: Anna Jackson, a Lincolnshire 11th generation arable and sheep farmer; Adrienne Gordon, a Cambridgeshire small-scale vegetable farmer; and Ben Thomas, who rears pasture fed beef cattle in Cornwall. As the trio strive to adopt regenerative practices and create viable businesses, they meet seasoned mentors who help them on their journey. They’re joined by other experts providing wisdom and solutions from a growing movement of people who are dedicated to changing the trajectory for food, farming, and the planet.

After the screening, the film's director, Colin Ramsay, will be joined by a panel of experts for a Q&A.
