BBC Farming Today has broadcast that there will be definate fertiliser shortages for all of UK farming due to the shortage and price increase of gas in the UK. “This will affect the food security of the United Kingdom.”
 
Yesterday we saw a lovely smallholding in the Forest of Dean completely surrounded by mature forest and lovely unadulterated soil. Today we are visiting our new connection for our HH systems on the 500 acre farm in Dorset that is working with us to promote our kind of sustainable farming.

If we are to avoid food shortages in the UK it looks like we’re going to have to pull out all the stops. This partnership in Dorset immediately puts us in touch with the Land Workers Alliance and again the Community Supported Agriculture scheme under which we successfully operated at our Well End farm back in Hertfordshire for nine years (and on which our web site is based) We did an online exhibition at the Oxford Real Farming Conference this year but now our new office branch in Dorset, with several paid staff, will be able to pull off a direct connection with the Good Gardeners International and the CSA movement as we are the originators of the No Dig System in the UK.
