Maximizing orchard space

Alley cropping is a type of agroforestry practice where farmers grow annual or perennial crops in “alleys” between rows of trees selected for their environmental and income-producing benefits. This agroforestry case study highlights an urban farm that worked with Pasa Sustainable Agriculture and Interlace Commons to design an alley cropping site plan that would accomplish its unique goals.
