The film tells the inspiring story of young British farmers standing up against the industrial food system and transforming the way they produce food - to heal the soil, our health and provide for local communities.

The screening will take place at Rising Brook Community Church, Stafford (ST17 9LT) at 7.15pm, and is followed by a discussion with an expert panel. There is an optional shared supper before the film from 6.30pm. Admission is free, but donations are welcome £2.50 unwaged, £5 waged.

Six Inches of Soil follows three new UK farmers as they strive to adopt regenerative practices and create viable businesses. They’re joined by other experts providing wisdom and solutions from a growing movement of people who are dedicated to changing the trajectory for food, farming and the planet.

Diana Smith of Rethink Food in Stafford says: "We’re excited to host this screening and to share the positive messages in the film to help shift UK food and farming towards more regenerative, agroecological practices for a more resilient system. We’re excited for the event and can’t wait to see the ideas and thoughts that come from the meaningful discussions that will follow the screening."
