Regenesis: feeding the world without devouring the planet
  • Online delivery

Save event
Regenesis is a breath-taking vision of a new future for food and reveals how new discoveries about the world beneath our feet could allow us to grow more food with less farming, and transform our relationship with the living planet. 
In the book, George Monbiot meets the people who are unlocking these methods, from the fruit and vegetable grower who is revolutionising our understanding of fertility; through breeders of perennial grains, liberating the land from ploughs and poisons; to the scientists pioneering new ways to grow protein and fat. Together, they show how the tiniest life forms could help us resolve the biggest of our dilemmas: how to feed the world without devouring the planet. 
Here, for the first time, is a thrilling vision of abundant, cheap and healthy food, which could trigger a shift as profound as the invention of agriculture. Here is a new cuisine that would let us make peace with the planet, restore its living systems, and replace the age of extinction with an age of regenesis.
Various websites including bank.green, switchit.green and Make My Money Matter, give information on investments by banks, building societies etc in fossil fuel projects  and the actions that can easily be taken so your money is not being used contrary to your values. We will spend a little time examining these websites to evaluate how effective they are in communicating their message. If you have time, do take a look at least at one of them.
