To mark the launch of the Wilding Shop, we start a new ‘Book of the Month’ brought to you from people across the whole of Knepp involved in all the different aspects of our work. We are also excited to be hosting a book signing with Issy in the Wilding Shop on Sunday 8 October.
Our inaugural Book of the Month comes from Ned Burrell, director and chef of Wilding Kitchen. Ned says, ”New York chef Dan Barber is a source of constant inspiration both on and off the plate – finally a chef that thinks holistically about food and farming.
Ned says, “The Third Plate is a beautiful illustration of how you can change to world through food. Barber uncovers the causation between our everyday choices and biodiversity decline, soil depletion, nutrient loss and global warming. More importantly this book offers hope and shows that by just choosing what we cook for dinner, can build a brighter, greener future.”
Watch this space for our monthly book selections brought to you from people across the whole of Knepp involved in all the different aspects of our work.
Book signing with Isabella on Sunday 8 October
“A deep, dazzling and indispensable guide to the most important task of all: the restoration of the living planet”. So said writer and journalist George Monbiot of Issy and Charlie’s The Book of Wilding, A Practical Guide to Rewilding, Big and Small, published earlier this year.
We are excited to be hosting a book signing with Isabella, our very own best-selling author (not to mention conservation pioneer!).
Pop by on Sunday 8 October, 11am-1pm to get your own copy of The Book of Wilding, Wilding or her children’s books When We Went Wild and When the Storks Came Home specially dedicated to yourself or someone you love. All would make great Christmas presents if it’s not too early to think about that!
