About the event

Charlie and Becky Cole will share their agroforestry system, they run a 'forward thinking farming' model, you are sure to find this a really great day of learning.

The Agroforestry is a hybrid of research, using similar ethos to Stephen Briggs, specialisng in fruiting variteies only, and integrating them with our farm shops supply chain. Merging this with advice from Wakelyns in terms of row-widths, and practical advice, particularly around inter-cropping. And then finally using some of Richard Perkins ideas in terms of stacking, with the shaded areas being filled further with fruiting bushes that are more shade tolerant.
