    Tolly_AFBookings for this event have now closed. If you are interested, please email us and we shall plan another workshop in spring 2016.

    Integrating trees into an organic horticultural system offers opportunities to diversify the business as well as environmental benefits. This workshop will provide practical advice and pointers on implementing agroforestry systems on your farm.

    The day will centre around Iain Tolhurst’s newly planted agroforestry system with plenty of opportunity for discussion. We will explore the pros and cons of planting trees for agroforestry in horticultural businesses. There will be advice on species choice and design; tree establishment, understorey management; pruning and managing fruit trees in agroforestry systems; management and grant availability.
