Applied Agroforestry

Agroforestry Case Study: Wellspring Forest Farm and School

Friday, July 7th 1:30-2:30pm E.T.

~ with Steve Gabriel, Wellspring Forest Farm and School

Wellspring Forest Farm demonstrates techniques that restore forest ecosystems, build soil, and preserve water quality while producing food, medicine and materials. Each enterprise on the farm is designed to be economically profitable, yet no system works in isolation, as all things in nature are connected.

The school is a place where we draw upon a rich community of teachers and mentors in support of a social mission to reconnect people of all ages to forest ecosystems and equip them with the knowledge and tools to become active stewards of woodland resources.

Join us to hear about agroforestry in action on Wellspring Forest Farm!

Steve is Agroforestry Extension Specialist for the Cornell Small Farms Program and also Managing Editor for the Small Farm Quarterly. He brings a diverse backgorund in forestry, farming, and ecology to his work as a forest farmer, educator, and mentor. He is co-founder of the Finger Lakes Permaculture Institute and in 2014 co-authored the book Frming the Woods: An Integrated Permaculture Approach to Growing Food and Medicine in Temperate Forests.
