Agroforestry Design with Edd Colbert & Getting into Forestry with Keziah Rose

Future Woods: The Voices of Regenerative Forestry

Dec 12 2022 • 43 mins

In this episode we discuss trees on farms with agroforestry consultant Edd Colbert.
Edd talks us through various approaches to incorporating trees and woodlands, and what to think about when getting started with creating an agroforestry plan for your own land.

Farming and forestry have often been viewed as separate disciplines but, increasingly, the argument for merging the two is making sound economic and environmental sense.

Agroforestry is an exciting way of using trees and woods on farms to assist food production and/or produce forestry products within a farmed landscape.

We saw some of Edd's designs on the ground earlier in the year during the Agroforestry Open Weekend at FarmEd.

FarmEd is a regenerative agriculture demonstration farm in Gloucestershire which aims to educate everyone on food and farming systems that nourish people and regenerate the planet.

In our woodland livelihoods section we hear from Keziah Rose, a forester in mid Wales, about her journey into forestry.
