Six Inches of Soil at Elvis & Kresse!

On June 13th we will be screening Six Inches of Soil at our workshop together with our friends at COOK, who will be providing a simple supper.

This wonderful documentary has been taking the country by storm with sold out screenings across the UK. We are very excited to be hosting one in our workshop!

The film tells the inspiring story of young British farmers standing up against the industrial food system and transforming the way they produce food - to heal the soil, our health and provide for local communities.

Why are we hosting?

This documentary features farmers who are all on the same Regenerative Agriculture journey that we are. And what is regenerative agriculture? This is a great graphic, to give you the details in a nutshell:

We armour the soil, we keep living roots in the soil, we do not disturb the soil, we have livestock and we are fostering biodiversity at every opportunity! We also don't use synthetic chemicals or fertilizer.... we just use compost (that we make from locally available waste) and compost tea! Come along and learn more.

In particular this film features three new farmers on the first year of their regenerative journey - Anna Jackson, a Lincolnshire 11th generation arable and sheep farmer; Adrienne Gordon, a Cambridgeshire small-scale vegetable farmer; and Ben Thomas, who rears pasture fed beef cattle in Cornwall. As the trio strive to adopt regenerative practices and create viable businesses, they meet seasoned mentors who help them on their journey. They’re joined by other experts providing wisdom and solutions from a growing movement of people who are dedicated to changing the trajectory for food, farming and the planet.

THE FIRE-HOSE COLLECTION

We fell in love with London's decommissioned fire-hose back in 2005 through a chance encounter with the London Fire Brigade. We took this lifesaving material home determined to breathe new life into it and save it from its otherwise inevitable end in landfill.

Our Fire-hose pieces are more than just a collection, they represents a whole new kind of luxury. One that is sustainable, ethical, transparent, generous and kind.

50% of profits donated

Since 2005 we have been rescuing all of London's retired fire-hose by lovingly handcrafting them into sustainable luxury bags and accessories. Every year since, Elvis & Kresse have donated 50% of the profits from the Fire-hose Collection to The Fire Fighters Charity. This heroic material, once used to save lives, gets a second chance to keep giving back.
