Real Food Gathering 2019

A marquee in the wilds of Glastonbury Valley, Somerset, in the midst of the howling gales gifted from Storm Hannah, was a fitting site for the first Real Food Gathering.

Hosted by the British Holistic Medical Association, around 50 passionate – hardy! – and influential individuals met to kick off a coalition of parties committed to putting the promotion of sustainable agriculture, lifestyle and diet at the top of the agenda. ANH-Intl has long been campaigning, educating and raising awareness around sustainable approaches to healthcare, which starts with the soils in which our foods are grown and on which our livestock graze.

Despite wondering if we or the marquee would survive the relentless 50+ mph winds, it was a privilege to be part of the coalition’s first conversation about the healing power of the relationship between soil, soul and society.
