Webinar:Applied Agroforestry from Wellsping Forest Farm and School
Wellspring Forest Farm demonstrates techniques that restore forest ecosystems, build soil, and preserve water quality while producing food, medicine and materials. Each enterprise on the farm is designed to be economically profitable, yet no system works in isolation, as all things in nature are connected.
The school is a place where we draw upon a rich community of teachers and mentors in support of a social mission to reconnect people of all ages to forest ecosystems and equip them with the knowledge and tools to become active stewards of woodland resources.
