Feeding Britain while preparing for the ravages of climate change are two key issues - yet there's no strategy for managing and enhancing that most precious resource: our land. This book explores how the pressures of leaving the EU, recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic, and addressing global heating present unparalleled opportunities to re-work the countryside for the benefit of all. Incorporating personal, inspiring stories of people and places, Peter Hetherington sets out the innovative measures needed for nature's recovery while protecting our most valuable farmland, encouraging local food production and 're-peopling' remote areas. In the first book to tackle these issues holistically, he argues that we need to re-shape the countryside with an adventurous new agenda at the heart of government.
