Land Healer: How Farming Can Save Britain’s Countryside

Saturday 25 Jun
16:00-17:00
Woodland Tent

Jake Fiennes is on a mission to change the face of the English countryside. As Conservation Manager at Holkham in Norfolk, one of the country’s largest historic country estates, his radical habitat restoration and agricultural work has nurtured its species and risen its crop yields – bringing back wetlands, hedgerows, birds and butterflies over 25,000 acres of land.

Mass farming, crop science and industrial chemicals have destroyed the majority of our natural landscape and wildlife over the last century. Land Healer is the story of Fiennes’s ambition to bring back our flora and fauna -by reclaiming our traditions and trialling new experiments which could restore our symbiosis with our land, and save our shared future.

Following the farming year and the natural cycle of the seasons, Land Healer chronicles a life of conservation lived at the edges, and is a manifesto for rethinking our relationship with the natural world before it’s too late.

This event is hosted by Mark Cocker, the celebrated naturalist and author of acclaimed books including Claxton and Our Place.
