Silvopasture is a sustainable agroforestry system that involves an intentional integration and management of trees, forages, and livestock in a single management unit.
The objective of this program is to educate forest landowners, farmers, and agricultural professionals, and eventually make them able to implement sustainable silvopasture practices to efficiently utilize their resources in order to benefit current as well as future generations. Experts from Tuskegee University, and Alabama Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) will be speaking at the event. Moreover, the host farmers will be sharing their experience on silvopasture-goat management system.
Participation to this event is free; however, preregistration is required by August 19, 2016.
