Willow Field

The tree lines in Willow Field are, er, willow.

Here’s stuff about coppicing the willow. It provides fuel to heat the house and is also used by hedgelayers.

In the alleys in 2021 we have YQ and Q population wheat, conceived here at Wakelyns by Martin Wolfe and the Organic Research Centre

Also an alley of mixed cereals chosen by Henrietta for the bakery.

And Henrietta’s homage to the Story of Wheat.

Finally, West of Tree Line 1 (so as to create Tree Line Zero?) Adam and Emma have planted willow for basket weaving at Wakelyns (because the willow in Tree Lines 1-10 is a variety chosen for biomass which is fine for willow structures but not for basket making.
