Agroforestry: Designing for Impact

  • ECHO Inc 17391 Durrance Road North Fort Myers, FL, 33917 United States (map)

Agroforestry is the agricultural practice of combining the management of annual crops and/or animals with trees. Agroforestry systems, largely composed of perennial crops, offer the resilience needed to address extreme climatic issues such as drought and torrential rain, along with social and economic factors that influence agricultural production of small-scale farmers. A few of the agroforestry systems that will be included in the course are: Food Forests, Farmer Managed Natural Regeneration, micro-woodlots, Home gardens, and Sloping Agricultural Agricultural Land Technology (SALT).
