The Film: Wildlife film maker Rebecca Hosking (“Message in the Waves”) investigates how to transform her family’s farm in Devon into a low energy farm for the future, and discovers that nature holds the key. With her father close to retirement, Rebecca returns to her family’s wildlife-friendly farm in Devon, to become the next generation to farm the land. But last year’s high fuel prices were a wake-up call for Rebecca. Realising that all food production in the UK is completely dependent on abundant cheap fossil fuel, particularly oil, she sets out to discover just how secure this oil supply is. Alarmed by the answers, she explores ways of farming without using fossil fuel. With the help

of pioneering farmers and growers, Rebecca learns that it is actually nature that holds the key to farming in a low-energy future.

We realise that many of you will have

seen this film when it was originally shown on BBC2, but it is such an accessible and informative documentary it is well worth seeing again – and you can bring your friends and family.

As before, the film will be followed by a short discussion looking at what we can do locally in Poole.

Free admission. Refreshments provided. All welcome.

(Note that the Google Map above is correct, but if you search for “Oakdale Methodist Church” it will show you a different venue on Wimborne Road, Poole – do not go there :-)
