Via Zoom

How can we ensure young people know where their food comes from? What should they learn about the impact our food choices have on the planet? What role can farms play in facilitating this learning?

These are just a handful of questions that our director, Richard Dunne, will be discussing at our next webinar with Patrick Holden, CEO of the Sustainable Food Trust and George Lamb, the co-founder of GROW and Wildfarmed.

Patrick Holden is the founding director of the Sustainable Food Trust, working internationally to accelerate the transition towards more sustainable food systems. He was the founding chairman of British Organic Farmers in 1982, before joining the Soil Association, where he worked for nearly 20 years and during which time the organisation led the development of organic standards and the market for organic foods.

His advocacy for a major global transition to more sustainable food systems now entails international travel and regular broadcasts and talks at public events. He is Patron of the UK Biodynamic Association and was awarded the CBE for services to organic farming in 2005.

George Lamb is the co-founder of Wildfarmed and GROW. After spending the first half of his professional career working in the entertainment industry, George realised he wanted to use his position and influence to make a positive, meaningful and lasting impact on society. In 2018, this led him to found GROW, a life skills education programme that works in schools and communities to promote mental wellbeing, physical health and a more hands-on relationship with Nature. A year later, he co-founded Wildfarmed, a regenerative farming business that grows delicious, nutritious grain in a way that respects the natural systems that all plants and animals (including us) need to survive and thrive.
