In 2007 artist Georgina Barney undertook an eight-month journey around fourteen farms across the island of Great Britain from livestock to arable, organic and conventional family farms, an activist eco-community, a city farm and an industrially-scaled agribusiness.
This moving and inspiring collection of texts, drawings and photographs tells the story of her journey. With a new introduction by François Matarasso and bookended by the artist's reflections ten years later, this book is a unique chronicle of agriculture, landscape and the place of Great Britain for our time.
Initially funded by the Arts Council England and supported by Farming & Countryside Education, GB Farming has been published to celebrate the ten year anniversary of the journey with the support of 61 Kickstarter backers.
