Growing up

There's an amazing farm, Blaencamel, nestled in the hills north of Cardigan. For the last 30 years, they've been growing wonderful vegetables that sell from their farm shop and farmers's markets in central and south Wales. They grow soil too. Waste cardboard from local shops, grass cuttings, waste silage, hedge trimmings and old veggies are turned into compost in three weeks; the compost helps the soil grow. The farm is carbon negative because of this, which means they lock up more CO2 in the soil humus than their farming produces. Three decades on, they're still finding out what works, with a combination of passion, skill, learning and action. The art of Do.
