Field Walk: Ground to Grub – Featuring Matthew Evans
Join RegenWA and Willarra Gold for a field walk encompassing soil health with special guest Matthew Evans.
Matthew Evans is a food writer, farmer, television broadcaster and chef. Based in Southern Tasmania, Matthew lives and works on Fat Pig Farm, a mixed holding where he tends a garden, makes cider, fattens the namesake pigs and tries to entice milk from two full cream dairy cows for his onsite restaurant.
As a grower and chef, Matthew has become mesmerised by how soil health, human health, and flavour are all intertwined.
Willarra Gold is a family-run farming business producing Hass avocados, passionfruit and managing livestock for production of lambs and beef cattle. The family farm takes pride in making products that are high quality, delicious, nutrient dense and grown regeneratively in a matter that utilises natural biodiversity and improves the land on which they farm.
This event is supported by the Department of Water and Environmental Regulation’s Soil Wise Program. Soil Wise is funded by the National Landcare Program Smart Farms Small Grants – an Australian Government initiative. It is supported by Healthy Estuaries WA – a State Government program.
Date: Sunday 20th November 2022 11am – 1pm

Got time to stick around for more? This event is part of an exciting day in Manjimup, as Matthew Evans will also be giving a talk in town at Tall Timbers Brewing Co at 2pm-4pm. In a wide ranging discussion to celebrate the release of his latest book, The Real Food Companion, Matthew will demystify soil, its role in creating nutrient dense food, and just how we can all do better; in our gardens and farms, in our homes, and on our plates. What we do matters to the land we walk, the families we nurture and the planet we live on. Click here for more information and to register for the talk.
