What would it take to revolutionise the future of food? 

Farming is the single greatest cause of environmental destruction: we have plundered our land and pillaged our rivers and oceans to feed ourselves, yet millions still go hungry and our food system is faltering. We need a food revolution – and the answer, says author and environmental activist George Monbiot, lies beneath our feet.

Exploring incredible advances in soil ecology, Monbiot lays out a vision for a new food future in which we farm less but grow more, producing cheap and healthy food in abundance. He reveals the people and initiatives already paving the way towards a new era in food – from perennial grain crops to innovators uncovering new ways to grow proteins – and considers how a radical reimagining of our food could transform our relationship with the living planet.
