Casterley Barn, Rushall Organics, Pewsey, Wiltshire SN9 6EG
9.30am to 5pm

Join us at Rushall Organics for a one-day workshop to discuss intercropping (morning) and cereal diversification (afternoon). There will be a tour of the farm and grain store and a chance to see new sowing and harvesting technologies used on the farm.

Intercropping:

  • Benefits of intercropping. Examples from around the world
  • Share experiences of intercropping - what has worked and what hasnít? What are the barriers to uptake?
  • Funded opportunities to get involved in intercropping trials

Diverse cereals:

  • Exploring opportunities for local, heritage, organic/low-input and alternative cereals in the UK, e.g. spelt, rye, oats, heritage wheat, barley, emmer and einkorn
  • Sharing innovations in the production, processing and marketing of agrobiodiverse cereals, with examples from along the supply chain

Full programme coming soon!
