Reducing plastics in horticulture: Alternative mulches / Ryton Organic Gardens / Coventry
When: Thurs, 13 February, 10:15 – 14:00
Innovative Farmers is launching a new field lab investigating biodegradable film and loose mulches (e.g. woodchip and grass clippings) as alternatives to conventional plastic in terms of weed suppression.
This meeting is for growers interested in taking part in a one to two-year trial beginning in April 2020. It is an opportunity to understand what is involved, the practicalities of taking part and co-designing the methodology with the research team from Coventry's Centre for Agroecology, Water and Resilience.
Generally, field lab groups meet up a few times a year. If you'd like to go along to find out more about a specific field lab, you can contact the group co-ordinator by using the Find a Field Lab page to find contact details for the coordinator, or get in touch and we'll put you in contact.
