Agroforestry is a land management system in which trees and shrubs are intentionally grown alongside crops and/or livestock. Examples include forest farming, silvopasture, and alley cropping.

Interested in seeing these practices on a farm near you? In 2024, Appalachian Sustainable Development will host farm tours spread throughout Virginia, Tennessee, and North Carolina. Keep an eye on this page as new dates in our farm tour series are announced.
