You’re invited to grab a cuppa and join Ethex, with representatives from Kindling Farm for an informal chat about this exciting organisation. Kindling Farm is raising funds on Ethex to help them buy a community-owned farm that will promote sustainable farming practices, producing healthy and organic food for all.
Since 2013, The Kindling Trust has worked to establish and nurture initiatives and enterprises that tackle some of the most pressing issues in food and farming, helping tackle the crises of climate change, biodiversity loss, and economic inequity by creating a better system for growing and supplying good, local food.
Kindling Farm is their response to an unsustainable and unjust food system, by creating a food economy that places fairness, sustainability and health at its heart. One that values the growers and producers of the food we eat, respects and nurtures the land and puts the health and well-being of communities centre stage.
The funds raised from their share offer will help to buy Kindling Farm, an area of 128 acres of farmland near Greater Manchester that they plan to develop into a community-owned farm producing organic fruit and vegetables.
The vision is for the farm to support a new generation of farmers, increase access to healthy organic fruit and vegetables using pioneering, sustainable farming methods that respect wildlife and provide a blueprint for the future of ecological food production.
On the webinar, Ethex CEO, Lisa Ashford will speak to Chris Walsh and Helen Woodcock, co-founders of Kinding Farm to learn more about their vision for the farm and why we need to fix the current industrial farming system to benefit society, health and the planet.
We’ll discuss with them how their innovative approach can be replicated to take decisive action to change the face of food production and tackle the climate crisis and how people across the UK can use their money to support them, therefore becoming part-owners of the farm while targeting a financial return.
