Pioneering Agroforestry at Dartington
The benefits of trees in agriculture: agro-forestry
Graham Burton & John Channon
Agro-forestry is the deliberate integration of trees and shrubs within agricultural crops and livestock. These systems simultaneously protect natural resources such as clean water whilst supporting agricultural production. Trees can enhance productivity and improve animal welfare. They might influence natural pest regulation and pollination services. This workshop will look a two different models of tree planting in productive systems and should interest anyone working in farming or horticulture.
This tour will be a 3-4km walk, walking boots or shoes required.
