Silvopasture Workshop
Wednesday, October 3, 6:00-8:00pm
@CCE-Tompkins Education Center, 615 Willow Avenue, Ithaca NY

With Steve Gabriel, author of "Silvopasture:  Managing Pasture Animals, Forage Crops and Trees in a Temperate Farm Ecosystem"

Silvopasture systems integrate trees, animals and forages in a whole system approach that offers a number of benefits to the farmer and the environment.  Such a system not only offers the promise of ecological regeneration of the land, but also an economical livelihood and even the ability to farm extensively while battling a changing climate.  Author and farmer Steve Gabriel will discuss how to integrate silvopasture principles into your homestead and farm and how we can use silvopasture to make agriculture more sustainable by incorporating climate smart solutions.

Fee: $7-$10/person, self-determined sliding scale, pay what you can afford.
