Kath Holden joined a group of friends to form a commune in 1973, based on E. F. Schumacher’s ideals of “small is beautiful” self-sufficiency, anti-consumerism and anti-industrialised farming. Joining a women’s consciousness raising group, Kath later developed and interest in the therapeutic and community aspects of farming and worked on some of the earliest city farms, including Freightliners Farm in Islington and Bristol’s St Werburgh’s City Farm.

Kath is now a retired historian and co-chair of the West of England and South Wales Women’s History Network.
