Jake Fiennes | How Farming Can Save Britain’s Countryside
Mon 17 Oct 2022 | 6:30pm - 7:30pm
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. In his new book Land Healer he tells the story of his 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. Join us for this rallying cry for rethinking our relationship with the natural world before it’s too late.
“Jake Fiennes is changing the face of farming in Britain…. a revolutionising force.” Isabella Tree
