Both fibre and food systems are facing the challenge of climate change. Combining the best of traditional and scientific knowledge how can we support the creation of carbon stocks and regenerative landscapes ? @field_folk here day 5 continuing the wool theme for #wovember ‘Wool is ‘naturally manufactured’ through inputs including: sunlight, water, and grass; wool renews itself every twelve months as sheep regrow their fleece. Land managers that commit to building their soil carbon stocks (and thus their productivity) through integrating carbon farming into their farm management, can enhance the draw down of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and into the soil. This enhanced draw down of atmospheric carbon into the soil where sheep graze, can be measured and appropriated to the footprint of the wool. This is Climate Beneficial Wool’. https://www.fibershed.com/programs/fiber-systems-research/climate-beneficial-wool/ @Field_Folk and @farmergala are creating a fibreshed for the Southeast of England to launch Spring 2019. Please subscribe to the Plawhatchflock.com newsletter if you would like updates and to be notified of events for the SOUTHEAST ENGLAND Fibreshed. There are currently 3 registered ‘affiliate fibresheds ‘in the UK: Northern England, Southwest England and Greater London. You will find details and a host of fantastic resources and research on the fibreshed website https://www.fibershed.com 🌱 #yarnfromourfarm # #farmingfibre #lovingtheland #treadinggently #climatebeneficialwool #slowfashionrevolution #shepherd #landworkersalliance #wovember2018 #fibreshed #soiltosoil With thanks to @brooklyntweed who produced the video and @fibershed_

This week I am taking over the @landworkersalliance feed. I will be talking about my work with @farmergala (pictured) running seasonal natural dyeing workshops and exploring some of the wonderful qualities of wool and local fibre systems. The landworkers alliance is a brilliant grass roots membership organisation for small scale, ecological farmers and works to improve the livelihoods of its members and create a better food system for everyone. You can join as a member or a supporter - details on their website www.landworkersalliance.com Visit @landworkersalliance to learn how you can add your voice to the call to put the environment at the heart of the new agricultural policy. This policy could have a profoundly positive impact on our food, fibre and landscape and wildlife. Help shape the world you want to live in! #landworkersalliance #wovember #shepherd #womenwhofarm #naturaldyeing #sheep #organicwool #britishwool #slowfashion

Hi, I am Deborah @field_folk and am taking over the @landworkersalliance feed this week. I collaborate with my daughter @farmergala to offer seasonal, natural dyeing workshops at Plaw Hatch farm where Gala has been the shepherd for over 6 years. Plaw Hatch is a 200 acre, biodynamic community farm on the edge of the Ashdown Forest in Sussex. We gather dyestuffs from the fields, hedgerows and gardens to dye the yarn from the flock who graze the land. This process has a delicious rightness to it 😊. November is #wovember - a celebration of the wonders of wool. There is an exciting revival of single flock and regionally produced wool in the UK. I will be exploring some of the amazing qualities of wool and what a regenerative fibre system might look like. For information about #wovember and for daily prompts visit @daughterofashepherd For information about the sheep: www.plawhatchflock Please do tag any shepherds producing wool yarn 🧶 and share the wool love!

Watched this amazing documentary tonight @inourhandsfilm which was all about supporting small scale local farmers and producers. Lucky to know and work with many including @tenementveg @mossgiel.farm and of course our very own @locavore_cic ! To tackle climate change we’ve got to disrupt the agricultural, economical and political systems which are obliterating nature and the planet. We can do this by using our buying power as consumers and spending our money where it matters! Why would you not want to invest in your health and the planet?! 🌍🥕🌾🌻 #sustainableagriculture #landworkersalliance #organic #communitysupportedagriculture #inourhandsfilm #community #growing #growyourown #education #realseeds #farming #brexit

Hi, this is @lwa_calendar continuing our takeover this week. . We all have a right to healthy, local and affordable food. However, here in the UK, we import roughly 40% of what we eat, despite the fact that we could produce more than we need of all foodstuffs - except meat. The Landworkers’ Alliance is working to increase our food self-sufficiency by supporting small-scale farmers whose businesses tend to be more productive, more localised and more environmentally friendly. .

Hello, it’s @lwa_calendar continuing our takeover. Did you know? Only eight supermarkets control more than 90% of food retail in the UK. .

Morning, it’s @lwa_calendar here continuing our takeover. As concerns around Brexit are thrown into sharp relief this week, we should reflect on how a no-deal Brexit scenario would impact on the UK’s food supply. Our country as a whole is highly dependent on food imports from the EU, while at the same time domestic food production is undermined by both a lack of government support and a shortage of agricultural workers. . The @landworkersalliance puts forward concrete policy proposals for diverse local food systems and viable livelihoods – for example in our publication A New Deal for Horticulture.

More than one farmer a week in the UK dies by suicide. This is absolutely shocking. Farmers were once held in high esteem, now they are forced to farm for no profits while decimating topsoil and local diversity and environment. It really doesn't have to be like this. Please write to your MP to ask for better farming practices. Our farmers and environment need everyone to care about their food and how it is grown. #farmers #fairfarming #profitsforfarmers #landworkersalliance #suicide #payfarmersright #buildsoil #agroecology #checkyourself #happyfarmers

One element will be a session on supporting the next generation of farmers, where young and new entrant farmers will be sharing their stories, passions and struggles, and where the Landworkers’ Alliance will explain what they are doing to support the next generation both practically and politically.

@lwa_calendar here again, excited to tell you more about our @landworkersalliance calendar project. . With Brexit looming and all the scare stories around the future of UK agriculture and the country’s food supply, now is a crucially important time to ensure growers who use sustainable practices to produce food for their local community are heard and supported - and this is where the Landworkers’ Alliance (LWA) comes in. . We’ve created a beautiful 2019 Wall Calendar in aid of the LWA - handcrafted in Bristol by @rosannamorrisprint. The process used is black-and-white lino printing of various agricultural scenes. Pretty stunning, if we may say so ourselves! What do you think? .

At @cato.press here in Bristol, together with artist @rosannamorrisprint , we are designing a beautiful 2019 Wall Calendar as a fundraiser for the Landworkers’ Alliance (LWA): they are the UK grassroots union of small-scale land-based workers, with a mission to improve the livelihoods of people working the land and to create a better food system for us all - including here in Bristol. . Throughout the week, we’ll be taking you on a journey - giving you sneak peeks of our calendar and its amazing artwork, and talking about why the LWA’s work is so important and how you can support them! . https://lwacalendar.bigcartel.com . http://landworkersalliance.org.uk . #printmaking #linocutprints #handcutprint #landworkersalliance #supportsmallfarms #lwa #2019calendar #foodsovereignty #bristolfoodproducers #localfood #farmtofork #bristolfood

#Repost @farmerama_radio ・・・ Live in England? ACT NOW: the agriculture bill that will determine the food and farming future for all in England is being debated in parliament for the next 2 weeks. We all need to act now!! Contact your local MP and meet with them and tell them why we need to ensure the agriculture bill is about building agroecology and encouraging new entrant farmers. Currently the new bill proposes to pay landowners for ‘public goods’ but it doesn’t recognise the link between Soils, food and human health, and the need for access to good food for all, from local ecological farmers!! Let them know we want more farmers and better food!! Today we went to the More Farmers Better Food March in parliament square, led by @landworkersalliance - contact them if you want any support in contacting your MP...they are organising a concerted effort! #futureoffarming #agriculturebill #morefarmersbetterfood #landworkersalliance #goodfoodmarch

#Repost from @mkvb_growingrootswellness plus a couple more pictures! Today we joined the #goodfoodmarch with for better food and farming in light of the new policies being discussed by government. We need more farmers, to support our young farming population, fund environmental and ecological farming and nourish a better good system. The government can do something about this. The time is now. We can do something about this. Remember you make a vote with every penny you spend on food 🥕🍄🍞🥦😍 ... #goodfood #landworkersalliance #gmfree #wefeedtheworld #votewithyourdollar #growingrootswellness #organic #lowinput #farming #farmer #marchforwhatyoubelievein

✊🌱✊🌱✊🌱✊🌱✊🌱 TODAY ! “ Why Landworkers' Alliance are marching? We all have a right to good food – it’s a basic human right! As the UK prepares to leave the European Union and the Agriculture Bill is being finalised we need to ensure farmers are able to produce nutritious ecological, healthy food and everybody has guaranteed access to it. On Sunday 14th October 2018 there will be a march in London calling for a post-Brexit agriculture policy that guarantees good food and good farming in the UK! Anyone who grows, distributes, prepares or eats food – together all of us have a stake in the food system. Whether you are worker in the food system, parents wanting affordable, nutritious food for your children, or you want to support farming that produces good food and works in harmony with the earth, this is a critical time for us all to come together. It’s our biggest opportunity to make our voices hear as the future of our food system in the UK is decided. What they are calling for? - Communities to have access to local, affordable, healthy food - - Support for ecological farming - - High animal welfare standards - - Protection of the biodiversity of our countryside - - Ending the use of agro-toxins “ - Via: www.sustainweb.org 📷- @wefeedtheworld #landworkersalliance #sustainweb #soilaccosiation #goodfoodmarch #westminster #morefarmersbetterfood
