Volume 8

Mother Earth coverDoes organic farming make money? It’s a simple question, but it’s one that will have kept many organic producers awake at night in recent years, and one we look at in this issue of Mother Earth. Martin Davies, the outgoing head of farming in the Soil Association’s producer support team, looks at the results of some number crunching of Defra’s annual farm survey data, while two practising organic producers give their own impressions of what the future holds for organic production. Away from the fields we look at The Cycle of Life, the Soil Association’s 1950 film promoting organic agriculture, and take an extended look at The Master and his Emissary, exploring how modern neuro-science can lend credence to the underlying philosophy of the movement.
