    Want to take part in unique learning experience ?

    It’s our belief that the demand for locally produced, biologically cultivated food is on the increase, as is a general desire to promote and preserve biodiversity. As far as we understand, small scale biologically cultivated polyculture gardens seem a practical, accessible and realistic way of providing food for humans whilst preserving and promoting biological diversity in the environment. With what appears to us to be a high demand and low supply situation, why are there not more of these enterprises around? To shed some light on this issue we will be undertaking a multi-year study looking at the economics of running such a garden and how productive it can be in terms of yields, income and biodiversity.

    Spring 2015 we begin and are offering an educational experience with a difference. Last year, we conducted a study at our residential site to gauge just how productive a biological polyculture can be. Read more here
    We are expanding upon this further in 2015, and are looking for a team of enthusiastic people to participate. We are focusing on the same topic – Productive polycultures, with an emphasis on market garden development,

    Our Goals for this Study
    To provide a unique and comprehensive learning experience to the participants of the programme
    To undertake a detailed study of our activity providing a valuable reference for anyone considering to develop a productive ecological enterprise
    To provide a template for further research that can be used by other interested parties
    To develop a functional market garden that is both productive and beneficial to wildlife.
