Pondero Newbury – Sustainable Food and Farming: Nourishing the Health of our People and Planet
Now more than ever the sustainability of our food and farming methods are essential. Having diverse and integrated food production systems that work with natural systems can be truly regenerative to the earth, its plants, animals and people. This talk will help attendees fully understand this impact and how you can make a difference.
Adele Jones is Deputy CEO at the Sustainable Food Trust. She has been with the SFT since 2013, primarily focusing on projects including true cost accounting in food and farming and the harmonisation of farm-level sustainability assessment. In 2020, Adele undertook a part time secondment to the Welsh Government working on an annual sustainability assessment for Welsh farmers called the ‘Farm Sustainability Review’. Between September 2018 – 2019 she undertook a part-time secondment with DEFRA working on a project called the ‘Gold Standard Metric’, which aimed to harmonise government-led farm and supply chain sustainability metrics. Previous to these roles, Adele has a background in geography and soil science.
We will begin the session with coffee and networking – a chance to meet with new and familiar faces at the wonderful Honesty Cookery School.
Pondero talks are run in collaboration with The Really Helpful Club.
