Keynote Panel Discussion - Nutrition is not enough: exploring food systems that heal body, community and planet

In the last five years, we have seen the shift towards lifestyle medicine and nutrition as methods of reversing and preventing disease rightfully become mainstream, where holistic and root cause approaches to health create wholeness in both the patient and practitioner.  This panel will address the important question - have we looked far enough upstream?

We bring to you a panel of experienced farmers and food producers to explore the critical role food production has in human, community and planetary health. We will explore whether all farming is the same and give real-life examples of how food production can heal the land, our communities and our bodies, offering you and your communities the opportunity to connect with a network of pioneering farming and food producers.

Panellists include: Patrick Holden, Founding Director and Chief Executive of the Sustainable Food Trust; Ben Raskin, Chair of Community Supported Agriculture; Sarah Langford, Barrister turned writer and regenerative farmer in Suffolk & author of ‘Rooted: Stories of Life, Land and a Farming Revolution, UK
