In the 30-minute presentation, which is then followed by Q&A, Iain Tolhurst talks stockfree farming, which is a U.K. term for farming without animal inputs. He describes the green manures and crop rotation that are used to maintain fertility on his farm, as well as concepts for carbon-sequestration in farming.
Iain Tolhurst is an organics consultant who runs a successful low-carbon farm in the United Kingdom, producing 400 boxes of vegetables each week. His farm was the first to be certified "Stockfree Organic", the certification program for veganic farms in the UK. Iain is also the co-author of Growing Green, the primary book about plant-based agriculture.
