In this episode, Patrick Holden speaks to Simon Fairlie, farmer and former co-editor of The Ecologist magazine.

The pair discuss Simon’s new book, Going to Seed, plus advice on how anyone can get involved in the world of agriculture. Simon suggests WWOOFing, making connections, and renting land instead of buying.

“Younger people come to our farm who are looking for something different in farming generally, and they go onto work at others' places and get more accomplished, and perhaps they go and establish their own farm”
