Event Date : January 19, 2017
Wakelyns is an innovative agroforestry farm in Suffolk run by Martin Wolfe. Established in 1994 it incorporates a mature hedgerow network, willow and hazel short rotation coppice (SRC), mixed timber and fruit trees intercropped with organic crops and vegetables.
Come and see a live demonstration with machinery in action coppicing SRC agroforestry rows and boundary hedges and pollarding trees in an agroforestry system. There will be a farm tour, and a chance to meet the contractors and researchers to talk to them about practicalities and trial results.
We will also run a short workshop in the afternoon to help us develop criteria to assess the sustainability of agroforestry systems.
