As part of its work promoting additional strategies to achieve soil health adoption and foster livestock production in Minnesota, the Sustainable Farming Association is hosting a webinar series focused on silvopasture and agroforestry. Silvopasture is the intentional practice of managing timber, forage and livestock on the same acres to create income opportunities on often under-utilized land.
Workshops are free and open to all but registration is required. The Tuesday, April 21 will run from 10:30 a.m. to noon and discuss Silvopasture in Minnesota with Jake Langeslag of Goat Dispatch, Jane Jewett of WillowSedge Farm, Travis Bruce of Plum Creek Ranch, and Vickie Kettlewell of Sunup Ranch. This webinar is focused on producer experiences using silvopasture in their operations. From beef to goats and from Northern to Southern Minnesota you will tour a diversity of operations, climates, and landscapes. This webinar is an on-the-ground tour of working farms.
Register at sfa-mn.org/soil. The workshop will be held using the Zoom web conference tool; meeting login information will be sent to registrants prior to each workshop.
