September 18 @ 10:00 am 12:00 pm

 Join us in Harrisonburg, VA at The Farm at Willow Run, where we’ll be discussing Silvopasture systems, the importance of genetic repositories, and cooperative land management.  We’ll begin with a short discussion followed by a walking tour and conversation about this unique system. 

The Farm at Willow Run is a 40-acre parcel owned by, and adjacent to, Virginia Mennonite Retirement Community. The goal of the farm is to produce healthy, sustainably grown food to feed and nourish our local community and provide equitable community access to learn and experience food and farming systems. The silvopasture at Willow Run was installed over the last several years as a part of the Catalyzing Agroforestry Grant Program and is a great opportunity to learn about silvopasture establishment and see a young project.  They’ve got many lessons to share from the fledgling phase of this system. We’ll also discuss the atypical land access model at the farm and the opportunity this has created for community-based agroforestry to thrive.
