For over 40 years, biologist and writer Colin Tudge has worked on agriculture and biodiversity. In this interview, he discussed what this has taught him about the kind of farming systems we need for a fair and sustainable future. He covers topics ranging from agro-ecology to genetic engineering, the role of science, the kind and numbers of farmers we need. He explains why we need an agrarian renaissance, how he co-founded the Oxford Real Farming Conference, the Campaign for Real Farming and the College For Real Farming and Food Culture.
He has published a wide range of books over the years many of which are shown below.
