Silvopasture Workshop - June 15, Tuskegee, AL
June 15, 2011
Macon County Commission Chamber, 205 N Main Street, Tuskegee, AL 36083
Southern Pine Silvopasture
Silvopasture is a sustainable agroforestry practice where trees and forage crops are grown together in a single piece of land, and grazing animals are introduced into the system to utilize the forages. Forage and livestock components provide regular short-term income while waiting for trees to be ready for sale. Studies have shown that, if properly managed, silvopasture can be more beneficial economically and environmentally than either tree or pasture mono-crop. This workshop will aware and train participants on establishing, managing, and utilizing silvopasture system. For more information and registration form, please look at the workshop flyer.
