Supporting Six Inches of Soil

Jude’s are committed to becoming more sustainable every day and believe in business being a force for good, which is why we’re so proud to be supporting Six Inches of Soil.

The film tells the inspiring story of young English farmers standing up against the industrial food system and transforming the way they produce food - to heal the soil, our health and provide for local communities. It follows three new farmers on the first year of their regenerative journey - Anna Jackson, a Lincolnshire 11th generation arable and sheep farmer; Adrienne Gordon, a Cambridgeshire small-scale vegetable farmer; and Ben Thomas, who rears pasture fed beef cattle in Cornwall. As the trio strive to adopt regenerative practices and create viable businesses, they meet seasoned mentors who help them on their journey. They’re joined by other experts providing wisdom and solutions from a growing movement of people who are dedicated to changing the trajectory for food, farming, and the planet.

Six Inches of Soil aims to empower young British farmers, to give them a voice and the confidence to farm in a regenerative way. One of the aims of the film is to get the public and the policymakers on side and to get farming the long-term investment that it needs.

The screening roadshow kicked off this week during the 15th annual Oxford Real Farming Conference (ORFC). ORFC is an event that attracts farmers, growers, activists, policymakers and researchers from around the world who are interested in transforming our food system.

The Six Inches of Soil team is working hard to arrange as many in person screenings as possible in 2024 across the UK and the world – they already have requests from Australia, The Netherlands and California, as well as the southernmost farm in mainland Britain! These screenings will include a panel discussion, and in many cases food and drink, and will make for impactful, local community events in their own right.

Six Inches of Soil have started adding screenings to their website as they’re confirmed, and this list is being continuously updated. They’ll also be announcing dates and venues across their social media and on their newsletter. If you would like to host a screening in your own community, please complete the registration form.

Claire Mackenzie, Six Inches of Soil Producer concluded, “Community screenings are a hugely important part of our impact campaign. We’re excited that so many farms and venues across the country are signing up to host events. It’s important that people have discussions at a local level to find ways to move forward to create profitable food systems that benefit the community whilst looking after our soil and the environment in the best possible way.”
