What does a dietitian have to do with farming?
Hosted by Rosa Holt.
This session covered three areas:
- What I do as a dietitian to advocate and inspire sustainability by supporting local producers.
- My work on the committee of the British Dietetic Association Sustainability Group and the wider aims of the group.
- The changes I’ve introduced to the farm since beginning my MSc in Organic Farming, including starting a new enterprise raising turkeys for Christmas on a silvopasture system.
