ARC holds its Faith in Food workshop at MIC
The workshop brought together more than 60 delegates from Christian, Hindu, Jain, Jewish and Muslim faith groups and secular organisations in London last week (7.4.11) to debate the issue of how to achieve a more faith-consistent and sustainable food and farming system.
Delegates heard about the growing ecological crisis in agriculture caused by the industrialisation of agriculture over the last 60 years or so. Patrick Holden, who left the Soil Association last year to set up a new global organisation, the Sustainable Food Trust, told the workshop we had been depleting our soil fertility, our fossil fuels, our mineral fertilisers and our water reserves to a critical extent.
