An #agroecologist gives a tour of the James Hutton Institute, Dundee

In January this year I gave a talk at the James Hutton Institute in Dundee called ‘Food, thriving people and paradigm shifts in the 21st century: goodbye homo sapiens, hello?’. It developed a talk of mine on the Food Systems Academy which you can view here. While I was at the Institute, Pete Iannetta, an agroecologist working there who had arranged my visit, gave me a quick tour around some of the site and talked about some of his work, including that on growing hops and faba beans in Scotland as well as making beer from all Scottish produce.
