Farm Gate: Do we need a new Agroecology Development Bank

Do we need a new state-owned Agroecology Development Bank for Britain? The Food, Farming & Countryside Commission thinks so. Their new report, ‘Farming Smarter: Investing in our Future’, says that an ADB would speed the transition to fair and nature-friendly farming – by filling the current gap in available finance, and building knowledge about agroecological agriculture in the financial sector.

ffinlo Costain is joined by report co-author Tony Greenham, and by George Young, an agroecological farmer from Fobbing Farm in Essex and a former banker in the City of London.
