At our recent conference, Farming and Climate Change: Towards Net Zero Carbon Emissions, regenerative farmer and author of the book Call of the Reed Warbler (2017), Charles Massy provided an eve of conference address looking at, amongst other things, the critical role that ruminants play in landscape preservation and restoration.

Charles Massy is a seminal voice in regenerative agriculture, which foregrounds ‘ecological literacy’ as a key tool. It looks to nature as a guide, seeking always to support and regenerate ecosystems. Massy is uncompromising in his conviction that healthy food comes from healthy landscapes and that modern industrial agriculture has damaged this. Instead, he sees regenerative practices as the way forward.
