The plight to save this traditional organic farm in Britain struck a chord with me so I thought I would post it here.

When I worked in the UK several years ago, the architectural practice I was working for did a lot of social housing design, including projects for a certain well-known (and royally attended) boys school near Windsor. At that time there was always talk about the college's plan for future economic sustainability depending on the development of large tracts of farmland it owned in the south of England. Since then I have wondered how many other institutions share the same economic planning methodology.

Please read the story of this one family's plight to save their traditional organic farm from development, and certainly pass it on to anyone you know who has any concern for the future sustainability of our global food supply.
