Description
October 17, 18, and 19, 2017 Montour Falls, NY at the Schuyler County Cooperative Extension Agroforestry is the science and art of combining trees and forests with crop production. It is a topic of great interest to many landowners and farmers and offers many promising enterprises including maple syrup, log mushroom cultivation, silvopasture (combining trees and livestock) and others. Research has established agroforestry as one of the most promising approaches to land use that both provides an economic return and supports environmental health. This three-day course is designed for service providers including extension educators, farm non-profit organizations, public and private foresters, and consultants who routinely work with landowners and farmers to implement best practices. The workshop is co-sponsored by the Schuyler County Cooperative Extension, Cornell Small Farms Program, with support from NE SARE, Penn State, and the USDA National Agroforestry Center. COST: $85 before August 15, and $100 after. LEARN MORE: http://smallfarms.cornell.edu/agroforestry-in-practice Contact for Questions: Steve Gabriel Cornell Small Farms Program sfg53@cornell.edu
