Silvopasture farms willing to host visit from DC?

Hello all,

I work for the USDA National Agroforestry Center, and we are looking for a few farms that would be willing to host a visit from policymaker-types in DC in the future - to show what silvopasture is, and the role agroforestry can play in providing food/products as well as addressing economic, social, and environmental challenges of today. If you would be willing to host such a visit - and are located 2 hours or less from DC, please email me at ColleenERossier@fs.fed.us!

Thank you,

Colleen
