Planting trees to fill a market niche

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 case study highlights a draft-horse powered diversified vegetable farm that worked with Pasa Sustainable Agriculture and Interlace Commons to design an alley cropping site plan that would accommodate its unique goals.
