In this episode of Farmerama, we are brimming with innovations and new perspectives from all over the world. We enjoy crowd-farming oranges in Valencia, WeFarm’s farmer-to-farmer knowledge sharing in Kenya and Peru, and the rise of Food Assemblies around the country – all part of a panel discussion we chaired at the ReWork Future of Food Summit.

Ben Raskin, Head of Horticulture at the Soil Association, is back as he chats to Alan Schofield, Chair of the Organic Growers Alliance, about an organic perspective on hydroponics and asks can growing without soil be organic? I get the low-down on a super salad tool from Pete at Sandhill Farms in Utah, and we learn how to eat our way to a stable climate by becoming ‘climavores’ – landscape-based eating as proposed by design studio Cooking Sections. You can listen online here or subscribe on iTunes.

We are always looking for more contributors, ideas, anecdotes or stories from farmers and their friends all over – so please do get in touch if you have something you want to share! You can contact us on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook or by emailing farmeramaradio@gmail.com. Let’s knit an ever wider web of people who understand the importance and resilience of smaller-scale farming.
