It may look like Captain Jack Radish training up new young pirates, but in fact its Iain Tolhurst who spent the day with a group of us from Cae Tan sharing some of his 40 years of in depth knowledge of organic growing.
Key learning for Cae Tan was around;
- 8 year crop rotations with fertility building underlays
- Soil analysis at both sites
- Fertility building through planting short rotation willow & alder coppice
- Effective machinery use
This was funded through FCFCG as a Welsh initiative to support the development of CSA in Wales. We hope to have Tolly back once a year to give continued advice & support.
