Remembering Our Humanity

an interview with Julian Rose

Julian Rose is one of the pioneers of UK organic farming, commencing the conversion of his farm in 1975. He joined the Soil Association board in 1984 and campaigned vigorously for the widespread introduction of organic farming methods at a time when this system was not known. Julian went on to develop his farm as a mixed organic enterprise selling all its main produce locally, while refusing to sell to supermarkets. He developed a theory of local production and consumption which he named “The Proximity Principle.” His advice has been sought by local authorities, development agencies and government.

Julian has written and broadcast extensively; his latest book is “In Defence of Life. Essays on a Radical Reworking of Green Wisdom” – a penetrating series of essays calling for urgent action to overcome the perilous state of our planet, at the local as well as global level. Also, “Changing Course – For Life” – about the radical changes needed to bring new hope to society. He is an environmental activist and a defender of peasant and family farming traditions throughout the world.

Julian Rose speaks with Joanna about his early initiation in Australia to the connection with Nature; learning organic farming; the staggering generosity of Nature; growing your own food; the crucial role of imagination; the proximity principle; community supported agriculture; speak your mind, remember your humanity.
