Rebecca Hosking used to travel the world as a wildlife filmmaker for the BBC. During her travels she constantly encountered the destruction that agriculture caused to the precious wildlife that she was there to document. This led her on a path back to her family’s farm in Devon in the southwest of England.. Today she runs part of the farm herself which allows her to experiment with what she calls agriwilding, a combination of agriculture and wildlife that is both climate-friendly and helps to boost biodiversity in the landscape. In this conversation, we speak about the deep connection Rebecca has with the animals on her farm, and what it feels like to be a woman doing agriculture differently in a field where most of the peers are men. We also talk about how the beauty of the stories on her farm helps to feed the local wool economy in the United Kingdom.
