3Mar2010: Transition towns need Transition farms

I am giving a talk at The Royal Agricultural College in Cirencester as part of this conference.

I will be concentrating on the transformation of Cottage Farm in just 4 years from chemical farming to Transition farming. This will include the reasons behind the project, the conversion to organic status and to suppliers of fresh organic carbon neutral meat boxes to the local market. I will also describe our carbon neutral methods of farming, energy production and transport as well as touching on the development of Transition in Cornwall.

I believe we may well be the first fully carbon neutral commercial farm in Cornwall and perhaps even in the whole South West. If you would like me to give this 30-60 minutes talk at your event, just let me know.


'Avoiding the perfect storm'

Transition towns need Transition farms

3rd March 2010
Royal Agricultural College, Cirencester


Setting the scene
A talk on the hotly debated issue of climate change and the consequential effects will explore one of the fundamental reasons why transition towns and farms are so important.

Transition Towns
What it means and how increased localisation can and is a realistic option for us all, co-operating and uniting local communities.

Transition Farms
Localising food production and consumption, linking the growers with the consumers is at the heart of transition. Communities and producers will illustrate the problems in a post peak oil scenario and their solutions.

A look at the transition movement from a global perspective.

Registration will open at 10:00 in the foyer outside the Parkinson Lecture Theatre and tea and coffee will be offered. At 10:30 the formal programme will start, ending at 16:00.

The communities that are undergoing the transformation are doing so in partnership with local producers. Localising food production and consumption, linking the growers with the consumers is at the heart of transition. The problems facing the producers in a post peak oil scenario will be discussed from those who are acting now. Their experience and knowledge is relevant to all those involved in transition towns and farms.

The final aspect of the seminar will be a look at the problems and solutions from a global perspective. We will then have the opportunity to have our questions answered by the experts.
