George Monbiot

Tue 12 July 2022

Writer and political activist George Monbiot discusses how changing our understanding of the world beneath our feet could allow us to grow more food with less farming.

Regenesis: Feeding the World Without Devouring the Planet

Around the world, farming has been wiping out vast habitats, depleting freshwater, polluting oceans, and accelerating global heating, while leaving millions undernourished and unfed. Increasingly, there are signs that the system itself is beginning to flicker. George Monbiot suggests there is another way and shows how the hidden biological universe beneath our feet could transform what we eat and how we grow it – from the fruit and vegetable growers who cultivate pests as well as potatoes; through producers of perennial grains who are liberating their fields from ploughs; and much, much more.
