The Prince of Wales has spoken about sustainable farming in an essay for BBC Radio 4's Today Programme.
The Prince said:
Around 35 years ago, I set out to show it was viable to adopt a sustainable approach to farming, so that we could produce nutritious food without destroying the soil that grows it. Year after year I had watched with increasing concern as many of this country’s precious landscapes were slowly diminished in the name of “efficiency”. Such has been the damage to the natural systems we depend upon, we must achieve profound and rapid change to reverse it. We must put Nature back at the heart of the equation.
