    What is the relationship between healthy soil and human health?

    “Regenerative agriculture provides answers to the soil crisis, the food crisis, the climate crisis and the crisis of democracy.” – Dr Vandana Shiva

    Dr Vandana Shiva, Satish Kumar, Helen Browning OBE and Colin Tudge, chaired by David Lorimer.

    The connection between the health of the soil and human health was specified by Sir Albert Howard and the founder of The Soil Association, Lady Eve Balfour, as far back as the 1940s. Howard had learned this from his experience of Indian traditions and wrote: ‘the birthright of all living things is health. This law is true for soil, plant, animal, and man: the health of these four is one connected chain.’ It follows that any weakness or defect in the health of any earlier link eventually reaches us and that regeneration of the soil is a key factor in regenerating human health.
