Agroforestry Trainings for Natural Resource Professionals: Forest Farming Fundamentals at Kentland

Price FREE Register

Event description

Thanks for your interest in Agroforestry Trainings for Natural Resource Professionals. Here, you can register to attend the FREE Forest Farming Fundamentals workshop. This event will happen rain or shine! Lunch is included.

Forest farming is the practice of cultivating medicinal, edible, decorative, and handicraft crops under a forest canopy, which provides shade levels and habitats that favor growth and enhance production.

The increasing interest in agroforestry among land managers has produced a growing need for technical assistance. Join us and learn about the principles, design considerations, benefits, and potential challenges associated with forest farming.
