Brussels Protest

Farmerama Radio: Episode 4

This month we hear about the challenges and successes for female farmers in Africa (and the UK) which has led to projects like MAFGE (Male Advocacy for Gender Equality). Nigel reports from the milk protests in Brussels which were incredibly hectic and fuelled by frustrated farmers determined to have their voices heard; roving reporter Ben Raskin explores how Helen’s Bay Walled Garden, a beautiful wild old kitchen garden in Northern Ireland, is being brought back to life by David Love Cameron, a Raymond Blanc heritage garden scholar… and finally we are treated to a collection of thoughts from a long-time natural wine maker in Italy. The whole show, including escaping cows, is broadcast from the Sussex farm of Monica and Fred Akehurst (the original home of IndieFarmer ) an inspiring pair of longtime British farmers.
