Four Biodynamic Farm Case Studies (session from BDA online conference 2020)27th November 2020
Biodynamic Activity in the UK – Presentation for the Biodynamic Federation Members Assemby Meeting November 202218th November 2022
In this talk, Adam draws on some of the vegetables that are the stars of his new book; The Adventures of a Seed Detective – Uncovering the secret histories of remarkable vegetables, to illustrate what has inspired him to write about the remarkable journey the most prosaic of vegetables have taken from wild parent to cultivated offspring. On the way these amazing plants found themselves revered and at the very heart of human cultural evolution. And as civilisations came and went the vegetables which were at the very centre of those food cultures continued to evolve, becoming a part of the story of globalisation, scientific advancement and the arts.
By growing vegetables, celebrating them, saving their seeds, and sharing them and their stories and personalities, we reconnect with a story of humankind that started some 12,000 years ago when our neolithic ancestors turned from hunter-gatherers to settled farmers.
