Defra-funded workshops to structure ELM policy for agroforestry – come and have your say

Event Date : December 8, 2021 - December 15, 2021

The Agroforestry ELM Test is the principal project helping to structure post-Brexit Environmental Land Management (ELM) policy for agroforestry, and is led by the Organic Research Centre, with partners from the Woodland Trust, Soil Association, and Abacus Agriculture.

From early October through to Christmas, 6 workshops will be running to gauge farmer opinions in England on the design of ELM policy for agroforestry.  Each workshop will be held on a farm with a specific focus on one type of agroforestry but all 6 will explore the core themes of payment and advice and guidance options within ELM. 

See links below for further information but please note details of two of the workshops are still to be confirmed at the time of publication.
