Nottinghamshire farm ecocentre

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.

This site attempts to gather material and interested people concerned with Amma's environmental initiative. The more the merrier! I hope that people will start to take part in this enterprise in their own lives as well as sharing what they know.
