We are the regeneration.
It’s up to us to reverse the damage that has been done to the soils and turn it around. We need living soils which produce healthy food and sequester carbon to help us fight climate change.
For too long, soil has gone unprotected, unloved and undervalued.
We are going to change that.
If you want to be part of the solution (or, ahem, SOIL-ution,) then come and join us in the Regeneration Area. This is for those hungry for hope. And it’s brand new for 2022.
Whether you’re a food lover and want to learn about labelling, a parent wanting to know what you can do to reduce climate change, a gardener keen to know about how best to cultivate your patch, we’re aiming to inspire you to make a difference.
We, along with Yeo Valley, have carefully handpicked some companies whose pioneering work we want to showcase. From food, drink, skincare, fresh produce, this is a hub where you can be safe in the knowledge these brands are doing the right thing for the right reasons. And to kick it off, you can find out about Yeo Valley’s incredible soil carbon research project here.
You might already know that Valley Fest has always been held on an organic, regenerative farm. Looking after the land is part of our DNA. In fact, you can find out more about how Luke Hasell, Valley Fest’s founder, farms here.
We’ve always promoted organic and locally-sourced produce at the festival. But as soil is being depleted at such a rapid rate and the climate is changing so quickly, we, along with Yeo Valley who are sponsoring this area, felt that more needed to be done.
After all, we are the regeneration.
It’s up to all of us to turn the tide.
And we have time, if we act now.
