PROF. JOHN MARTIN  -  FOOD SECURITY & THE FUTURE TRANSFORMATION OF THE COUNTRYSIDE   John Martin is a Professor of Agrarian History and Honorary Research Fellow at the University of Leicester. John is also a past Fellow of the Museum of English Rural Life, University of Reading. His research focuses on the transformation of the countryside, agriculture and rural life. He is particularly interested in the issue of food security with particular regard to the impact of and legacy of the state sponsored agricultural revolution during the two world wars. In addition to his extensive publications, he has acted as a consultant and contributor to BBC's Wartime Farm, Tudor Monastery Farm and Full Steam Ahead as well as acting as a consultant for ITV’s Home Fires series.   John will be talking to us about the future of farming, rural estates and land agency. John believes that BREXIT is a challenge not dissimilar to other challenges that British agriculture has faced in the past. Therefore, we can learn a lot of lessons from the past, and the future may not be as unpredictable as we think!   Venue: Maple Durham Golf Club, Chazey Heath, Reading, RG4 7UD Time: 6.45 PM - 9 PM Please arrive for 6.45 pm promptly as dinner will be served at 7 pm.
