Darfield – Six Inches of Soil Screening & Panel Discussion

Selwyn Waihora Zone Committee and Quorum Sense are hosting a screening of Six Inches of Soil at Darfield Recreation Centre.

Join us for an evening celebrating soil, food and farming.

The new grassroots UK documentary film ‘Six Inches of Soil’ tells the inspiring story of young British farmers transforming the way they produce food – to heal the soil, our health and provide for local communities.

Filmed over three years, this story of courage, vision and hope follows three new farmers on the first year of their regenerative agriculture journey – Anna Jackson, a Lincolnshire 11th generation arable and sheep farmer; Adrienne Gordon, a Cambridgeshire small-scale vegetable farmer; and Ben Thomas, who rears pasture fed beef cattle in Cornwall.

As the trio strive to adopt regenerative practices and create viable businesses, they meet seasoned mentors who help them along the way. The film features other experts, including New Zealand-born agroecologist, Nicole Masters, providing wisdom and solutions from a growing movement of people who are dedicated to changing the trajectory for food, farming and the planet.

Refreshments will be provided.

Doors open at 6:10pm for 6.30pm start.

After the film, there will be a short panel discussion.

Tickets are $10+GST each (+ $1.07 booking fee)
