Cultivating Conversations on International Women’s Day
Learn about food growing and land access in our inspiring event.
Many of us have found solace in gardening and food growing during lockdown. We want to celebrate this on International Women’s Day with a ‘Cultivating Conversations’ event.
The theme this year is “Choose to Challenge” and we want to challenge beliefs around food growing and land access. Join us for an inspirational panel and discussion facilitated by Helena Appleton from our Alchemic Kitchen.
This event is supported by the Food Citizens Project run by Feedback in Buckinghamshire.

Our wonderful panel is:
Judy Ling Wong – Honorary President of Black Environment Network
Joy O’Neil – Care Farming and Green Care
Ruby Radwan , Willowbrook Farm
Ruby Radwan has always been interested in the relationship between health and the environment. Ruby previously studied Psychology, trained as a holistic therapist and worked as a reflexologist at the Acland hospital, whilst also applying her academic and spiritual principles in seeking to raise her children in a healthy and natural environment. Eighteen years ago, Ruby and her husband Lutfi took their young family on an adventure. They gave up their jobs and established Willowbrook Farm where they sought to rear animals ethically, nurture the environment on the farm and live sustainably. They now live in a house made of mud which they built and deliver ethical and sustainable produce to customers in Oxfordshire and beyond.
Freya Robinson – Old Tree Market Garden
Freya stumbled upon organic vegetable growing by chance from a low point in her life and has never looked back. She is driven to help others find connection to their food and subsequently the planet through farming. Since finding passion in food Freya has studied horticulture, soil health, composting and naturopathic nutrition. Freya believes that personal health, plant health, soil health and planet health are intrinsically connected and is evolving her first business Old Tree Market Garden to explore and inspire others to see the links between these often isolated subjects, as well as to grow delicious food!
