Shillingford Organics (Botany Section)
23 June 2018 at 11:00 am - 4:00 pm
Shillingford Organics, (The Barton, Shillingford Abbot, EX2 9QQ) is a 350 acre organic farm just outside Exeter. (SX9088). It has been in organic production since 2002 growing fruit, veg and arable crops.
We have permission to take a walk over the farm which will be partly cultivated with various crops as well as grazed and set aside with green manures.
There is parking and facilities at the farm and a contribution of £3 is suggested for this. It is also possible to park in Alphington (just before you go over the A30 Bridge) and then take a 20 minute walk along the road. All very flexible – there will be a short 10 minute chat from the owner, and Sharon Bickley, who has knowledge of the farm layout, can direct to the accessible fields for perhaps some interesting arable weeds!
NON-MEMBERS WELCOME. Bring packed lunch and appropriate footwear. Please contact the leader if you wish to attend – meeting details can sometimes change at short notice and if the weather forecast looks poor the meeting may have to be cancelled. You should also check with the leader if you wish to bring your dog.
