Almost 40 leading experts on regenerative farming, climate change and the environment are lined up to deliver the ground-breaking inaugural Down to Earth event next week (15 June).  

The one-day event for livestock farmers on regenerative farming takes place on Wednesday 15th June at The Farm, Shropshire, home to dairy and beef farmer Tim Downes.  

Down to Earth

Visitors will have access to a jammed pack speaker programme, farm tours to see regenerative farming in action, practical demonstrations and more than 50 exhibitors.  

Headlining this year's event are two leading figures on regenerative agriculture- Professor Jude Capper, Independent Livestock Sustainability Consultant and established business leader, entrepreneur and scientist Stephanie Race from the Earth Labs Group.  

Jude will discuss creating healthy soils and using regenerative principles to improve farm sustainability and Stephanie on 'The roadmap to net zero: creating resilience in livestock farming systems in times of climate change'. 

There will also be talks on everything from agroforestry, use of bokashi bugs to reduce emissions, carbon footprinting, practical grassland management and improving soil health.  

Host farmer Tim Downes will also be showcasing the regenerative farming principles he has adopted on his farm and the benefits they are bringing. Tim is adopting many regenerative farming principles to make the farm more resilient and energy-efficient. He believes becoming more resilient is understanding how carbon and energy are cycled within the system and used efficiently rather than wasted.  

So, no matter where you are on your regenerative farming journey, this event has something to offer every livestock farmer.
