Alice represents a small group of young people who are choosing a career on the land. She will tell us how and why the work captured her & perhaps even challenge our notions of what it means to be a farmer.

The author of Do Grow, Alice Holden has extensive experience of farming and market gardening, which she uses to help build 'Growing Communities'. A community-led organisation based in Hackney, North London, this project not only provides fresh, seasonal produce to the locals, but is also offering a real alternative to the current damaging food system.
