Join Ben Raskin, author of the new book The Woodchip Handbook, to learn about the many uses of woodchip both in regenerative agriculture and horticulture. Ben is Head of Horticulture and Agroforestry at the Soil Association and will draw on his extensive practical experience using woodchip to provide the latest research from around the world plus inspiring case studies from innovative farmers.
Ben will highlight the tremendous potential of woodchip to enhance soil health and plant growth and how it can be applied as a natural mulch for weed suppression, temperature buffering and water conservation, as well as being an excellent growing medium for propagating plants. Woodchip is also a carbon-rich compost ingredient that supports beneficial fungi and microorganisms and can act as a powerful soil health booster when applied as small-sized ramial chipped wood.
Ben will be taking questions from the audience, so please do send any woodchip related question in advance to: Rose Baldwin, email@example.com.
