Redirecting Finance: Financing British Agroecology in the Aftermath of Brexit

Redirecting Finance is a collaborative project between Croatan Institute and the New Economics Foundation (NEF) for Farming the Future, a coalition of UK funders whose mission is to strengthen and amplify the movement for an agroecological system of food and farming.
