Focus Site Project: Diversifying into horticulture and establishing a pick your own enterprise using the no dig method

Project Objectives:

The aim is to use the no dig method to set up an ecologically sound, financially viable market garden which will include fruit, vegetables, salad crops and flowers, plus a small number of top fruit trees which will act as an agroforestry wind break and add value.

The viability of offering PYO cut flowers and pumpkins for Halloween will be evaluated. 

It is also proposed to compare wool with cardboard as a base for weed suppression.
