Paul Jackson is an expert aboriculturalist who has brought his huge experience and expertise to his work on the trees at Wakelyns over many years.
He co-ordinated and led our tree planting day in January 2020 giving fascinating explanations of how the diverse range of trees at Wakelyns have responded to the agroforestry location, to the changing climate and do the way they have been managed over the years.
The follow up were two tree walk days in August 2020. Both were oversubscribed (with social distancing limiting us to 20 people each time). But everyone reported having a fascinating day listening to Paul and, of course, delicious lunches from Henrietta Inman, now based at the Wakelyns Bakery.
For 2021 we’ve so far the following Tree Walk Days:
- 23 May: Tree Walk (10 am start)
Each day starts with coffee at 10 am before you head off round Wakelyns with Paul giving you fascinating explanations what’s happening in our agroforestry tree lines and hedges. You” come back to the farmyard for lunch from Henrietta and her team at the Wakelyns Bakery and then head out again for more fun around the fields in the afternoon.
Cost is £50 per person, or £25 for people on low incomes. Morning coffee and lunch included.
