Event Description
Agroforestry, the intentional planting or management of perennial tree and shrub species within an agricultural system, can provide a multi-functional approach for enhancing land stewardship, meeting conservation goals and increasing and diversifying income potential. Well informed placement and management of these long term systems is paramount for achieving success and maximizing returns on investment. Join us on June 5th – 6th for a two day, hands-on design intensive where we introduce concepts of agroforestry systems and walk attendees through the process of accessing the landscape for opportunities for incorporating perennial agricultural systems into an already actively managed farm. This training is intended to mix landowner/operators with professional service providers to encourage a dynamic group learning process through experience sharing, reality checking and innovative idea generating conversations.

This event will take place on Lundale Farm, a 520-acre preserved landscape of woodlands, pastures, crop fields and riparian areas, bordered by French Creek and Beaver Run. Currently, there are six agricultural operations on Lundale property, producing a wide range of products, from pastured poultry to microgreens, to vegetables and beef. The diversity of the landscape and farming operations on Lundale’s property make it an ideal location for hosting this workshop intended on helping land stewards realize the greatest regenerative, productive potential of their managed landscapes.
Registration will be open from 2/16/2017 to 6/2/2017 at noon.
Lodging Information
Participants who are looking to stay overnight in the area may want to start by looking at French Creek State Park, located 15 minutes away from Lundale, which has cabin and pull-in campsite options. Reserving cabins well ahead of time is recommended.
