Following the launch of this years eARTh project by the Helen Browning. the Greenhouse is launching a (crowd?)-funding appeal with the aim to engage the public in how Agroforesty can play a major role in tackling climate change.
From the start of the Norfolk and Norwich Festival in May, through to October the Gallery will host an exhibition of the 'Farmers Year', which will feature a series of poweful wood-block engravings created by Clare Leighton. Published during the 1930's these images will be on display alongside information which highlights the impacts of industrial agriculture and the changes we can all make.
We have film footage of Helen Brownings presentation along with other powerful film imagery created by the Soil Association and the Climate Change Coaltion. We need your support to help promote the exhibition, films and talks.

Agroforestry is a term that means combining agriculture and trees.
On farms it means creating wildlife corridors, strenghtening resistance to crop disease and expanding the capacity of the landscape to store and hold rain water, and critically it is an approach to land management which increases the organic matter in soil, helping to tackle climate change and protect the soil on which all life depends.
It's not just about farms and agriculture, in gardens and parks in towns and cities we could significantly increase the level of climate resiliance by providing spaces and places for more insects, bees, wildlife and trees, which in turn help moderate extreme temperatures and improves air quality.
For all of us, it means a way of engaging in positive, create activities that increase the amount of local food available and improve every aspect of our health.
