Lady Eve Balfour

Lady Eve Balfour was among the first female agricultural students at the University of Reading when she started in 1915. Her conversion to organic principles occurred in 1938, when she read Viscount Lymington's book Famine in England. Through it she discovered the ideas of Sir Albert Howard and Sir Robert McCarrison on the relationship between the quality of nutrition and the health of the soil.
