Interview with Sir Julian Rose ~ Author & Environmental Activist

An interview conducted by Mary Lee Weir with British author & environmental activist, Sir Julian Rose.

Julian is one of the pioneers of UK organic farming, commencing the conversion of his farm in 1975. He developed a theory of local production and consumption which he named "The Proximity Principle." His advice has been sought by local authorites, development agencies and government. Julian has written and broadcast extensively and has just completed a book "Changing Course For Life - Local Solutions to Global Problems", about the radical changes needed to bring new hope to society.
