If you have a window box, veg patch or allotment, how does the way you are growing food change your relationship with it?
In this episode of Unearthed, grower and forager Poppy Okocha hears how communities and farmers are producing food around the world, with the environment and changing climates in mind.
Food educator, agriculturalist and cook Dee Woods joins Dr Caroline Cornish to discuss how our modern relationship with food has distanced us from its production and the processes involved. Poppy meets a community growing project at Kew that’s benefitting from the powerful relationships and mental wellness benefits of getting to grips with the soil.
Kew Scientists Dr Nicola Kuhn and Dr Tiziana Ulian discuss how traditional growing practises can revive and enliven palates and local economies via sustainable, local crops. And Dr Caspar Chater tells how the humble bean could be a key part of the fight against global hunger and malnutrition.
