About The Event
Sophie Pavelle is a science communicator, presenter and ambassador for the wildlife trust. In her passionate and thought-provoking book, she scales the length of Britain, by train, bicycle and kayak, to seek out rare species that could disappear entirely by 2050.

Claire Ratinon is an organic food grower based in east Sussex. Claire appears on Gardener's question time, in the Waitrose food magazine and has already published one cookery book. Claire's new book Unearthed is a work of nature writing, storytelling and memoir, and it charts her first year of making a life in the countryside while reflecting on her journey into food growing, the stories of her family and the history of Mauritius. It explores how, in coming back to the earth, she has found a sense of homecoming, defiant ancestry and deep purpose in the company of the roots, leaves and fruit that she grows.
Both these women recognise a deep belonging to our soil, countryside and how import it is for all to access and care for this environment.
