Silvopasture in Practice

Silvopasture integrates trees, grazing animals, and forages in a mutually beneficial ecosystem that has been rated #1 among all agriculture solutions to a changing climate. In this session we will discuss the indigenous roots of silvopasture and agroforestry, learn best principles and practices, and discuss strategies to convert woodlands to silvopasture and plant trees successfully in pasture. Along the way, we use the natural ecology of the landscape, the inherent wisdom of the animals, and innovative concepts such as tree fodder to create living, productive ecosystems that enhance habitat for both farm and wild animals. Join Steve Gabriel, farmer and educator from Wellspring Forest Farm in New York State, and author of the book Silvopasture from Chelsea Green Publishing.
