More Mixed Farms and Millions More Farmers

3 day Seminar with Colin Tudge – 29 April – 2 May 2016

The Chisholme Institute: Scottish Borders
Renowned biologist, and science writer Colin Tudge will set out his case for nothing short of an “agrarian revolution,” when he advocates “starting the world all over again” as part of his ongoing Campaign for Real Farming.

From 29 April – 2 May, in a challenging three day seminar at The Chisholme Institute in the Scottish Borders, Colin Tudge will focus on what he has identified as the day-to-day realities of food and farming in today’s global context.

Key Points

  • Colin Tudge will highlight on the need for sustainable “enlightened agriculture” – a complete re-think of the economics, the politics, the science, the scale and the technology behind current farming practices and who controls them.
  • He will pose moral and practical questions, inviting discussion and debate on exactly what farmers really think they should be doing and why.
  • He will explain why farming should draw on the wisdom of the great spiritual traditions to ensure an indefinite future for the human race.
