Charwood Farm is a proposed Agroforestry Enterprise sited on three acres of former pastureland. Our primary activity is carbon capture.
We aim to grow a variety of produce on a commercial basis whilst providing environmental, economic, social and educational benefits to the local and wider communities. Our plants are grown in Char-compost, derived from waste streams and produced on-site, housed in a controlled environment and irrigated by an aquaponic system. Around this core to our enterprise is a diverse edge ranging from natural bee-keeping and willow work to a frog nursery. UPDATE, SEPTEMBER 2016: So far we have encountered a number of obstacles, including red tape and a destructive north-easterly, all of which have drained our resources for now. In an effort to be creatiive around our current limitations we are concentrating on Zone 00. We have started a social enterprise, Creative Contemplations, offering a mixture of regular free mindful crafting meetings as well as low-cost immersive weekends, which are held in Youth Hostel Association venues. These are designed to instill a practice of using craft as an accessible form of meditation. When we are back on the land, mindful crafting will be an integral element of the Charwood Farm system.
