Webinar Alley Cropping: Planting Trees for Economic & Ecological Diversity

Learn about two farms pioneering this agroforestry practice in the Keystone State.

Alley cropping is an agroforestry technique that incorporates trees between rows of crops to increase both biological and economic diversity. We’re working with local farms that will serve as demonstration sites for the benefits of alley cropping.

During this lunchtime webinar, you’ll hear from two of sites involved with this project—including a rural 12-acre vegetable operation and a community-based urban farm—as they wrap up the design phase, and prepare to implement their alley cropping systems. They’ll discuss unique aspects of their plans, including challenges and how things have changed from their initial vision. This conversation will be guided by Meghan Giroux, of Interlace Commons, who serves as the lead consultant on this alley cropping project.

This project is made possible by a Conservation Innovation Grant from the Pennsylvania Natural Resources Conservation Service.
