About Charlie Massy - Author and Radical Farmer

With his new book, Call of the Reed Warbler, Massy gives us a new way to think about how we farm and grow food. Charles Massy explores transformative and regenerative agriculture and the vital connection between our soil and our health. It is a story of how a grassroots revolution – a true underground insurgency – can save the planet, help turn climate change around, and build healthy people and healthy communities, pivoting significantly on our relationship with growing and consuming food.

Presented by Real Food Projects and the Food Connect Foundation.  All proceeds go towards the Food Connect Foundation's community-owned food hub project.
