Agroforestry Open Weekend 2024

Visit Wakelyns 18 or 19 May!

Agroforestry Open Weekend now in its 4th year!
In 2021 we at Wakelyns initiated Agroforestry Open Weekend with 6 participating farms, mostly near Wakelyns in East Anglia. Last year 10 farms took part. For 2023 we had around 40, across the UK and Ireland and beyond (including Finland and Costa Rica). So everyone should have an opportunity to visit an agroforestry site near home! It’s a bit like Open Gardens or Open Studios – each farm opens for visitor for some of the weekend 17-20 May 2024 – see www.agroforestryopenweekend.org or look at @agroforesrtyopenweekend on instagram or @AFopenweekend on Twitter.

Meanwhile – come and visit us at Wakelyns!
For Agroforestry Open Weekend 2024, we at Wakelyns will be open on Saturday 18 and Sunday 19 May.

Come and have a look round and learn about all that we are doing at Wakelyns including with the RealVeg CSA horticuture team and Adam & Emma from Willow Phoenix.

There’ll be fun stuff for kids and, of course, delicious food from the Wakelyns Bakery.

Paul J, our long term expert arborist, will be leading ‘taster’ tree walks during each day introducing you to everything arboricultural at Wakelyns (info below about all day tree walks).

Paul W will be around to talk about the practical side of farming with agroforestry.

Claire will enthuse you about her Contemporary Hempery project at Wakelyns and Gill can show you how she looks after the wild bees at Wakelyns.

This year we will also be joined by some of the team from the Organic Research Centre who will be explaining their work at Wakelyns, including how we are now (through them) part of an EU wide project studying the long term impacts of agroforestry at 9 of the most established sites across Europe.

Admission is free but (so that we can manage the flow) booking is essential please. Booking via the links below.
