Conservation and ag professionals, are you ready to learn agroforestry?


Tree-based farming practices protect soil, water, wildlife, and the climate, while allowing farmers to grow food and fiber products at the same time. This collection of courses takes you through the conservation and economic benefits of integrating trees into farm systems so you can better assist landowners in adopting agroforestry. 

Over seven courses, you will learn:

  • Soil health fundamentals for farmers.
  • Water quality management and how to make riparian buffers work for you.
  • How to cultivate climate solutions in agriculture.
  • Conservation and economic benefits of alley cropping and silvopasture.
  • People skills for providing technical assistance to landowners.  

$175 for all seven courses or $40 per course
