South Gloucestershire, UK - Runfibre, a local fibre optic internet service provider, has funded an agroforestry project next to Inglestone Common, aimed at supporting sustainable agriculture practices and promoting biodiversity. The project is being led by Phil Stocker, a resident of the local community and an experienced agroforestry practitioner.
The agroforestry project involves planting 50 mixed and native trees in a 5-acre field, which will be divided into four 1.25-acre blocks. The small fields will provide a tree and pasture environment that will benefit local wildlife, including birds, bees, and small mammals. The trees being planted include a mix of species, such as Damson, Willow, and Walnut, which are native to the area and provide important habitat for local wildlife.
"We're proud to be supporting this agroforestry project on the edge of Inglestone Common, led by Phil Stocker," said the CEO of Runfibre. "As a local business, we believe in supporting our community and the environment, and this project is a great example of that. Phil's expertise in agroforestry makes him the perfect candidate to lead this project, and we're excited to see the positive impact it will have on the local ecosystem."
Phil Stocker has extensive experience in agroforestry and is passionate about sustainable agriculture practices. "I'm delighted to be delivering this agroforestry project in an area of significant landscape value" said Stocker. "Agroforestry is a great way to promote biodiversity and sustainable agriculture, and I'm grateful to Runfibre for their support of this project."
The agroforestry project is expected to have a positive impact on the local ecosystem, providing a diverse range of habitats for wildlife, while also promoting sustainable agriculture practices. The project will be carried out over the coming months and is expected to be completed by the end of the year.
"We're excited to see the positive impact this agroforestry project will have on the local community and the environment," said the CEO of Runfibre. "Supporting sustainable practices is important to us, and we're proud to be able to contribute to projects like this in our community."
