Joel Williams – the bridge between conventional and ecological agriculture in the UK

If you want me to give you a heads up when the next podcast is out, leave your name and email below (I promise not to spam – I regularly unsubscribe myself because of it…):

Joel Williams (click to go to his website) is a well known expert in a wide range of agricultural practices. He has a traditional degree in agricultural education, but through his passion for sustainable growing, he has acquired knowledge of ecological practices. He worked for three years at Laverstoke Park Farm at the Soil Foodweb lab set up by Dr. Elaine Ingham. He now works in London at the University of Roehampton where he runs their on-campus market garden which serves an educational facility where students and staff are exposed to the benefits of growing fresh food at home or at work. He loves teaching, and comes across as a kind, patient, and very knowledgeable presenter. You can find his talks on youtube, including one he did at the International Permaculture Convergence in UK in 2015. He’s got a busy schedule of talks and seminars for next year, and two that might interest you are with the London Permaculture Network in January, and a seminar with RegenAg UK, where the date is yet to be confirmed. In his view, there is an opportunity for permaculture to aid the horticulture sector in the UK, which is currently in decline.
