The Great Ouse Valley Trust has announced a screening of the eagerly-anticipated documentary film, Six Inches of Soil.

The film tells the inspiring story of young British farmers standing up against the industrial food system, and transforming the way they produce food - to heal the soil, our health and provide for local communities.

The screening will include a short introduction and conclude with a panel discussion with a Q & A session and refreshments. A bar will be also be available.

Six Inches of Soil follows three new farmers on the first year of their regenerative journey: Anna Jackson, a Lincolnshire 11th generation arable and sheep farmer; Adrienne Gordon, a Cambridgeshire small-scale vegetable farmer; and Ben Thomas, who rears pasture fed beef cattle in Cornwall.

As the trio strive to adopt regenerative practices and create viable businesses, they meet seasoned mentors who help them on their journey.

They’re joined by other experts providing wisdom and solutions from a growing movement of people who are dedicated to changing the trajectory for food, farming and the planet.

Graham Campbell, chair of the Great Ouse Valley Trust, says: ‘We’re really pleased to host this screening and to share the positive messages in the film to help shift UK food and farming towards more regenerative, agroecological practices for a more resilient system.

"We’re excited for the event and can’t wait to see the ideas and thoughts that come from the meaningful discussions that will follow the screening."

Claire Mackenzie, Six Inches of Soil producer adds: "Community screenings are a hugely important part of our impact campaign.

"We’re thrilled that Great Ouse Valley Trust is hosting this event. It’s really important that people have discussions at a local level to find ways to move forward to create profitable food systems that benefit the community, whilst looking after our soil and the environment in the best possible way."
