Discussion at Groundswell 2022
Speakers: Will Simonson, Stephen Briggs, Helen Chesshire & Ben Raskin
Defra have stated that they want agroforestry to be supported within ELM. In this session we will describe the Defra-funded Test on Agroforestry and its results to date. The panel will include practising agroforestry farmers who are part of the Test and who will give their perspective on what is needed to make agroforestry mainstream. But it will also be an opportunity for delegates to share about their interest in agroforestry and what support they are looking for.
The partners on the panel will pose questions on topics such as tenure, training and permanency of trees. There will also be an opportunity to hear about agroforestry policy support in an EU country and what can we learn from this.
