ORC Wakelyns Agroforestry Open Day

19 June 2014

Seeds to trees the value of diversity

ORC Wakelyns Agroforestry, Metfield Lane, Fressingfield, Eye, Suffolk, IP21 5SD

Having listened to the feedback from previous open days we have revamped the format to maximise the amount of time available for participants to see our innovative agroforestry system at Wakelyns. As in previous years, you will still get the most up to date information on the research and development that is being undertaken both on the site and more widely at ORC, but now the day will be built around two field based workshops with opportunities for wider discussion around these sessions. The topics are;

  • Exploiting within-crop diversity by recreating modern landraces: The potential for participatory plant breeding (PPB) using cereal populations; and
  • Systems diversity Agroforestry in action

To book a place and check discounts for ORC Friends, Participatory Research Network and IOTA members, contact Gillian Woodward or book online (sorry no discounts via this route) here.
