Book Launch – SOIL – Saturday 17 July, 2021

July 17, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Join us at Fat Pig Farm to launch Matthew’s new book Soil. In this ode to the thin veneer of Earth that gifts us life, he shows us that what we do in our backyards, on our farms, and what we put on our dinner tables really matters, and can be a source of hope.

‘A love letter to Mother Earth and entertaining must-read that goes to the heart of our survival’ CHARLES MASSY, author of Call of the Reed Warbler.

What we do to the soil, we do to ourselves.

For too long, we’ve not only neglected the land beneath us, we’ve squandered and debased it. But if we want our food to nourish us, and to ensure our planet’s long-term health, we need to understand how soil works – how it’s made, how it’s lost, and how it can be repaired.

To celebrate the launch, we’re hosting a Saturday afternoon soirée, Matthew and Sadie will greet you with a welcoming drink and nibbles, take you on a tour of the farm and chat about how we can stop treating the soil beneath out feet like dirt. The bar will be open, the fires lit and the books fresh off the printing press!

‘A wonderful, exuberant, intelligent, mind-expanding hymn to the soil – sung from the heart of a man who has experienced its miracles. Wonderful stuff.’ ISABELLA TREE of Knepp Estate and author of Wilding.
