About+

From the environmental podcast Prophets, Wizards & The Quest To Value Nature comes Foodlands,

a specially commissioned series presented by the Framework Project. 

Designed as a go-to resource for people new to the issue of how our food system impacts life on earth, as well as veterans who want to hear from different perspectives, Foodlands is an editorially independent series inspired by our project's interdisciplinary ethos which places facts over fictions, collaboration over conflict and progress over labels.

Hear from experts, activists and regular people from across the global north considering the past and future of our food lands as biodiversity loss, climate crises and food security challenges spark the question - how to value sustainability in our food system?
