David Hieatt deep in discussion
|Less camping than glamping|
Some of the most powerful talks were by passionate and committed individuals who are striving to make a real difference. Chido Govera told of how she overcame poverty in her native Zimbabwe by learning to cultivate edible mushrooms and now trains orphans to do the same. Caroline Flint, a midwife and birth activist, has dedicated her life to improving the birth experience, making it gentle, humane and peaceful. In 1989 she founded The Birth Centre which achieved dramatic reductions in the need for medical interventions, increased levels of breast feeding and offered a radical alternative for the women who experienced it. Michael Kelly founded Grow it Yourself (GIY) a not for profit organisation dedicated to inspiring people to grow their own food and provide support and training to encourage a revolution in food production.
