Nottinghamshire farm ecocentre

Posted by on June 30th 2014

David Rose is turning his arable farm at Screveton into a fully-fledged ‘ecocentre,’ with help from the Woodland Trust.

His latest wheeze is to stripe his wheat fields with rows of apple trees.  This is called alley cropping, and is designed to nourish the soil, encourage wildlife and harvest apples for cider-making.

See eco-centre.org.uk; the alley cropping is shown here.
