Pioneering Organic Farmers Eliot Coleman & Guy Singh-Watson in Conversation
Chelsea Green Publishing proudly presents an evening in conversation with pioneering organic farmers Eliot Coleman and Guy Singh-Watson, moderated by the Soil Association's Ben Raskin. We will be discussing what the future holds for organic farming internationally, how Guy and Eliot have seen the scale of organics change, and what it means to them to be an organic farmer today.
The evening will start at 18:30 at the Duke of Cambridge in Islington, the only certified organic pub in the world. Guests will enjoy canapés and a welcome drink. Copies of Eliot's 30th anniversary edition of The New Organic Grower and Guy's recent book of essays, Vegetables, Soil & Hope will be for sale at a discounted price.
About Eliot Coleman
Eliot is the author of many books, including The New Organic Grower — a seminal title that helped launch the organic farming revolution in the USA, and inspired a generation of farmers to work with the land, rather than against it. Eliot has fifty years' experience growing vegetables year-round, even in the extreme climate of coastal Maine, USA. He is renowned for his innovative farming techniques and customized farming tools, and his Four Season Farm is an internationally recognised model of sustainable small-scale organic agriculture.
About Guy Singh-Watson
Guy Singh-Watson started Riverford as a one-man business with 30 veg box customers. Today Riverford is the largest veg box scheme in all of Britain, delivering organic vegetables to 47,000 customers a week. Guy has pioneered how to scale-up the veg box model, collaborating with numerous partner farms and growing the reach of organics within the UK. Twice awarded BBC Radio 4 Farmer of the Year, Guy is passionate about sharing with others the organic farming and business knowledge he has accumulated over the last three decades.
