Restoring the Soil Food Web at Scale

Seminar Tent

Two Norfolk farmers are experimenting with the Soil Food Web – a soil science course developed by the world’s foremost soil biologist, Dr. Elaine Ingham, and advertised as the key to rapid soil regeneration. In this session, Nick Padwick of Wild Ken Hill and Rosie Begg of Gorgate Farms will look at both theory and practice. They will share their experiences of taking the Soil Food Web courses, providing insights into its nuances and complexities. The session will then turn to the practicalities of implementing the Soil Food Web at farm scale, which has vast potential but requires specialist equipment, thousands of tonnes of biomass, and precision. The session will be chaired by Dominic Buscall.
