Agroforestry is agriculture incorporating the cultivation and conservation of trees. It has long been believed that trees, crops, and livestock can be grown together as a cohesive system to help improve the overall outputs of a farm. Evidence of agroforestry systems can even be seen as far back as the Middle Ages and can be found all across the globe from the Americas to Europe to Asia. The concept of incorporating trees back into agricultural management is now getting a new lease on life in modern agriculture in Alberta and we are giving you the opportunity to see for yourself!
In this webinar with the Agroforestry and Woodlot Extension Society, we will be discussing the role of Agroforestry in reducing soil erosion, with a particular focus on the Alberta landscape. Join us to learn how you can incorporate agroforestry into your farming practices to keep your soil where you need it most!
