In ‘Land of Plenty: A Journey through the Fields & Foods of Modern Britain’, Charlie Pye-Smith describes the remarkable range of people and farming systems that have shaped our landscape. But these are uncertain times for Britain’s farmers and there is much debate about their future role. Charlie will talk about how the countryside could change over the coming years, reflecting not just our need for sustainable food systems, but the desire to protect rural communities, landscapes and wildlife.

Charlie Pye Smith is a writer focusing on travel, conservation and how people can make a living from the land. The result is over a dozen books and scores of feature articles for the Financial Times, the Daily Telegraph, the New Scientist and many other publications.
