This event includes classroom time with power point presentations featuring agroforestry sites worldwide. Attendees have a choice of taking the entire two-week course or attend various portions of it. During this event, filming of the course will take place to create an on-line version for future students, in addition to sharing the information worldwide.
Agroforestry has the potential to reduce monocultures, regenerate abused farmland, feed the people, conserve biodiversity and sequester excess atmospheric carbon. Agroforestry is the solution to many of the world’s problems.
