Film Screening: Six Inches of Soil

FoodWise Leeds and Feed Leeds are collaborating to present a special screening of the documentary film “Six Inches of Soil” – a story of courage, vision and hope.

This film showcases the incredible journey of British farmers who have taken a stand against the industrial food system and transforming the way they produce food. Through their innovative practices, they are to healing the soil, benefitting our health and providing for local communities. The screening will be held at HEART on Friday, May 10, with doors opening at 6pm. The film will start at 6:30pm, followed by a panel discussion where attendees can engage with experts and discuss the important themes presented in the documentary and how we can do things differently here in Leeds. This is an opportunity to learn about sustainable agriculture practices and be inspired by the positive impact farmers can have on our food system.

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.
