Dawn to Dusk – A day on a community supported farm. A look at the methods and benefits of a community supported farm, where organic methods are used and wider damage to the environment is negligible. With rainwater stored on the farm to enable irrigation to increase crop yields and variety, with a special emphasis on maintaining soil quality. Produced by Saffron Knight and Julian Jones of Water21 for the Biodynamic Association (BDA).
Julian Jones of Water21 co-presented, produced, and co-funded the BBC programme Don’t Go Near the Water with the late singer Kirsty MacColl in June 1991, and built the UK’s first full domestic sustainable urban drainage system (SUDS—rainwater, grey-water and sewage water recycling system) for the purpose. NOTE: The gravel planting medium used for planting reeds at Kirsty’s home slowly became less efficient after only a few years of use, while the soil-based reedbeds at ICI (built by Dr Lucian Gill of Oceans-ESU) continued to work efficiently, with an indefinite estimated lifetime for treating highly toxic effluent.
