There are many schisms embedded into the modern world. A foggy distance between our actions and the fallout from those actions. The carbon output of your job, the manufacture of the clothes you wear and the final destination of the waste we create. The separation between what we eat and how it is grown is one of the largest chasms we face. To feed 9 billion people do we have to turn a blind eye to poisoning the land and destroying biodiversity? Is there a better way?

To discuss the lay of the land when it comes to pesticides, agriculture and industrial farming we joined this week by Nick Mole policy officer for Pesticide Action Network UK (PAN UK). Nick sheds light on what current farming practice constitutes, how Brexit will affect British farmers and where we are changing for the better.
