The Agroforestry Research Trust

is a non-profit making charity, registered in England, which researches and educates about agroforestry and perennial crops. We do practical research on our trial grounds, run courses, publish guides, and sell plants, seeds and books. We are a carbon-negative organisation - we store more carbon on our land sites than we produce from all our activities.
