FACT Liverpool to Screen Exciting New British Documentary ‘Six Inches of Soil’

Feedback’s Alchemic Kitchen and Feeding Liverpool are announcing a screening of the eagerly anticipated documentary film Six Inches of Soil. The film tells the inspiring story of young British farmers standing up against the industrial food system and transforming the way they produce food – to heal the soil, our health and provide for local communities. The screening will take place at FACT Liverpool at 6pm on the 27th March and will include a panel discussion with members from The Kindling Trust, Compost Works and the film’s director Colin Ramsey.  

Six Inches of Soil follows three new farmers on the first year of their regenerative journey – Anna Jackson, a Lincolnshire 11th generation arable and sheep farmer; Adrienne Gordon, a Cambridgeshire small-scale vegetable farmer; and Ben Thomas, who rears pasture-fed beef cattle in Cornwall. As the trio strive to adopt regenerative practices and create viable businesses, they meet seasoned mentors who help them on their journey. They’re joined by other experts providing wisdom and solutions from a growing movement of people who are dedicated to changing the trajectory for food, farming and the planet. 

Lucy Antal from Feedback’s Alchemic Kitchen project says:

“The Liverpool City Region has both hidden farms and food growing spaces that no-one knows about, so we’re excited to host this screening with Feeding Liverpool and to share the positive messages in the film as part of the Liverpool Good Food Plan. It is so important to shift food and farming towards more regenerative, agroecological practices for a more resilient system, and we must bring consumers, chefs and procurers with us on that journey. We’ve got a great panel to chat through these themes after the screening and will be really interested to hear the audience’s thoughts.”

Claire Mackenzie, Six Inches of Soil Producer, adds:

“Community screenings are a hugely important part of our impact campaign. We’re so excited that Alchemic Kitchen and Feeding Liverpool are hosting this event as part of Liverpool’s Good Food Plan;it’s really important that people have discussions at a local level to find ways to move forward to create profitable food systems that benefit the community whilst looking after our soil and the environment in the best possible way.
