Tuesday 10th December

 By Peter Aspin Silvopastoral Agroforestry

The next STT meeting is at St Peter’s Church Hall, Monkmoor, Shrewsbury,  SY2 5SW on Tuesday 10th December at 7.30pm when Peter Aspin will give a talk on The Shropshire Agroforestry Project entitled " A blueprint, on the arboreal future of the farmed landscape with especial emphasis on flora and fauna but without the constraints or corruption of subsidies". Over the years many members will have visited the farm near Wem and Peter will bring you up to date with the background and research on weather, climate and food supply taking place there. If you are not familiar with the work it might help if you looked at the website for background information before attending.

As an extra attraction just before Xmas Peter will bring along on the night  a few rather interesting but vital trees/shrubs to be auctioned for STT funds (if anyone else wants to donate something unusual along they are most welcome) so bring a few pennies and Xmas generosity along, cash only of course; the only rules are only one item to be purchased per member, no commission to be charged nor is VAT on that commission to be charged (any tax inspector reading this, did not see this!)
