Cohosted by the Association for Temperate Agroforestry our first ever *Virtual* Perennial Farm Gathering December 6th-9th!
In a year of social distancing, the Perennial Farm Gathering will be more important than ever to help bring the perennial agriculture community together. A large focus of this year’s gathering will feature a perennial favorite–Nutshell Show & Tells–5 minutes to share a bit about your farm and work. More details on remote adaptations coming!
We are excited to host our keynote panelists: Olive Watkins, cofounder of investment fund to support and center black folks in the food system, and a steward of her family’s four generation timber farm in North Carolina. Dr. Jifunza Wright-Carter, President and co-founder of the Black Oaks Center in Pembroke IL; a model farm of conservation education and outreach that focuses on ecological restoration of agricultural land in under served regions to catalyze sustainable economic development. More details coming soon!
Ready to learn something new? Check out research talks, panels on various topics including financing, environmental and social justice, specific agroforestry crops, as well as fun activities to help networking with other practitioners, researchers, ag professionals, and anyone interested in perennial agriculture.
We are so thrilled to have you join us this year–and end this year more inspired, hopeful, and connected!
