Training on Sustainable Agroforestry Practices

September 22 @ 7:30 am - 5:00 pm

Agroforestry is a sustainable land-use system that involves the intentional integration and management of trees, crops, and/or livestock in a single management unit.  This system offers more
economical, environmental, and social benefits compared to the sole operation of its components.

Workshop topics/activities include:
• Agroforestry and silvopasture
• Tree management in agroforestry systems
• Agroforestry application in Alabama
• Alley cropping of vegetable and medicinal plants in pine and nut production systems
• Intercropping pecan with moringa

Registration fee: Free.  Working breakfast, lunch, and afternoon snacks will be provided for the first 30 registrants.
