    Rooted by Sarah Langford

    As a top London barrister, Sarah Langford thought she would always be a city dweller—until a series of events forced her to move to Suffolk with her family in 2017, the beginning of a journey that would see her discover regenerative agronomy and travel around Britain meeting farmers who are reimagining the dominant model for agriculture. “I never expected, or wanted, to live a life on the land,” writes Langford in the introduction to Rooted, which is both poetically written and filled with compelling data about modern-day farming. “But then fate took me there and taught me lessons I never knew I needed to learn.”

    When Isabella Tree and her husband inherited a 3,000-acre farm in West Sussex, England, it wasn’t long before they had to rethink the unsustainable farming practices that were running the health of their land, quite literally, into the ground—along with their finances. It was only when they decided to radically rethink traditions and “rewild” their land that something wonderful happened: Not only did the wildlife come back, but biodiversity and soil health flourished. The aptly named Tree sees rewilding as the missing link that will guarantee the future of our ecosystems—a fascinating read.
