Event Description

Thursday, January 30th 2014 at the Century House in Latham, NY (Albany), preceding the 6th Annual “Winter Green-up Conference” on January 31st and February 1st

 

Silvopasturing has vast potential in the Northeast to increase farm viability and address numerous environmental challenges through the sustainable and symbiotic production of timber and livestock on the same acreage.  This special one-day conference will build on the concepts and knowledge presented at the inaugural “Northeast Silvopasture Conference” in November, 2011.  Foresters, farmers, land managers and conservationists – and anyone else with a role or interest in sustainable food and timber production systems – will benefit by attending this conference.  Come meet and network with other silvopasture practitioners and learn how to make silvopasturing work for your farm or the land that you manage for others.
