DATEWednesday 29th September To be rescheduled
TIME7:30 pm
Online via Zoom

We are delighted to have Wayne Douglas joining us next Wednesday for a look at the many benefits trees have on farms. 

INTRODUCTION

The humble tree takes numerous shapes and forms around the globe and grows in a variety of climates and ground conditions. 

As farmers we need a variety of trees that can not only provide shelter, shade and possibly nutrients for livestock – we also need trees to improve microbiome support, mitigate wet pasture and enhance the overall wellbeing of the farm environment.

Growing a multipurpose variety would be a huge benefit to pastoral farmers, but it’s not the only reason for trees in the landscape, and this webinar is the chance to air points of view and share thoughts on the wonderful and ancient being we call the ‘tree’.

We have invited Wayne Douglas to talk about trees with us. He has made trees for farms his passion and will share and discuss his ideas and things he has seen and researched during this webinar.
