Thank you to the Polyculture Market Garden Study Team 2017

It's that time of year again where activity in the Polyculture Market Garden Study draws to a close.  Beautiful sunny autumnal days have been spent gathering an abundance of walnuts, hazelnuts and sweet chestnuts.  This week we are chopping and dropping any left over plant material from the annual trial beds, clearing away the stakes that can be reused next year, and internally winding down from the third year of our research in the garden. We will shortly be obtaining and sending the annual soil samples, and once the results are back from the lab. we can finalize our write up and post the results here.

See here for the results of our polyculture studies from 2014 - 2016

In the meantime, we would like to take the opportunity to thank all the individuals who gave their valuable time and support to the project in 2017. Without you, we couldn't do it!

Fergus Webster, Gabriele Landi, Chris Mallorie, Abigail and Ed,  Ute Villavicencio, Charlie Morton, Chris Kirby-Lambert, Simon and Kartini, Karl and Marlene, David Pavlasevic, Kathy Donor, Wil Kunkle, Ben Matz, Rosa Van Giessen and Timo.
