Trees and Vegetables group, 11th January, Duchy Home Farm, Tetbury, Gloucestershire

Trees & Veg 11Jan18

Introductions and an opening presentation were given by the farm manager, David Wilson, who set the scene and gave a background to the wider farm context. Fred Bonestroo (head grower) then led the group on the farm walk around his agroforestry system. An organic vegetable rotation is managed between rows of apple trees. Discussions centred on the layout of the tree rows, tree and understorey management, logistics of growing cops in the rows and benefits of having the additional harvest. The group were able to question Fred Bonestroo and David Wilson who kindly provided background to the rationale, the lessons learnt and future plans.

Sally Westaway, from AFINET UK (ORC), gave an update on AFINET activities in Europe and outcomes from previous UK events. Talks were then given by two vegetable growers who have established agroforestry systems on their farms:
