Islands In A Common Sea: Stories of Farming, Fishing and Food Around The World

Jenny has just published this brand new, beautiful book to celebrate farming, fishing and food around the world in the UK. The global launch will be the 29th July 2024. 

Jenny believes that there is more in the world that unites us than divides us and that we have a lot more in common with each other than not. A farmer’s and fisherman’s challenge and solution in the UK is very similar, if not the same, as a farmer’s and fisherman’s challenge and solution on the other side of the world.

Read and enjoy the stories and recipes of 25 farmers and fishermen, written from the heart, about their farm, produce, challenges and solutions, passions and dreams, along with recipes showcasing their produce and country.

From rural Bhutan to central Singapore, the wilds of Western Australia to paddy fields in Japan, and Argentine vineyards to Nigerian aquaculture, “Islands In A Common Sea” takes a deep dive into the everyday lives of 25 pioneering individuals who nurture their environment in the hopes of a regenerative, productive, and positive future.

“Islands In A Common Sea” is a beautiful keepsake dedicated to the next generation of farmers and fishermen and £2 from every copy sold to be donated to the award-winning ShareTheMeal campaign. Those donations will not only provide life-saving food in emergencies but also facilitate school feeding, nutrition support, cash transfers and resilience programmes all over the world to help eradicate world hunger.

“Islands In A Common Sea” will be a beautiful keepsake dedicated to the next generation of farmers and fishermen.
