Wildlife film maker Rebecca Hosking 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 are Alison and David, two Americans in their 20s who just wwoofed for the first time in Sicily. We had such an exciting and memorable week at the farm, we decided to capture our most memorable moments in a video.
It was incredible to get away from the distractions of living in a connected world and be able to breath fresh air and enjoy nature. Our family was so gracious, hospitable and eager to teach us about their way of life.
David is a professional filmmaker from North Carolina who works in Copenhagen at an international non-profit school. Alison is a graphic design and social media major studying abroad in Copenhagen.
We loved having this opportunity to apply our skills to such a meaningful experience; we hope you enjoy the video!
