Restoring Nature 2023: Rewilding and Regenerative Agriculture Literary Festival

Share this post

Ambios and The East Gate Bookshop have teamed up once again to host Restoring Nature 2023, a one-day family-friendly literary festival at Lower Sharpham Barton Farm.

Join us on Saturday 13th May to discover how rewilding and regenerative farming practices are restoring nature: improving food security, reducing the use of chemicals, rebuilding soil fertility, employing more people on the land and creating places that benefit us all.

The day will be filled with talks, walks, books, authors, discussions, live music, a fully licensed bar and delicious locally sourced food. There will be authors throughout the day reading and presenting from their books, both outside on the land and inside the barn.

The guest authors for Restoring Nature 2023 are Guy Shrubsole (The Lost Rainforests of Britain), Anita Roy (A Year in Kingcombe), Amy-Jane Beer (The Flow: Rivers, Water and Wildness) and George Monbiot (Regenesis: Feeding the World without Devouring the Planet).

All ages are welcome and well-behaved dogs on lead are also welcome.

Please note parking at the farm is only available to Blue Badge holders. we are a 45-minute walk from Totnes town along the scenic cycle path. Alternatively, a free return shuttle service provided by the non-profit Totnes Community Bus Group will be available from Totnes town.

*Please note, food and drink are available to purchase separately and are not included in the ticket price
