Our Ten Years on the Front Lines of the Good Food Revolution
Presenter: Brent Preston
The large scale, chemical intensive farming system that dominates our North American landscape is hijacking our climate, damaging our environment and making us fat, sick and unhappy.
Brent Preston argues that there’s a better way, an agricultural system that can enhance our air, water and soil while providing healthy food for all. More than a decade after leaving Toronto and buying a rundown farm near Creemore, Brent and his wife Gillian Flies have shown that farming organically, on a small scale, can not only heal our planet, but also can provide a meaningful and profitable way to make a living. Brent details the trials and tribulations of building a farm business from scratch, and charts a path for a more sustainable future.
