This event has been canceled. Stay tuned for update on this event transitioning to an online format. 

 

Join Savanna Institute and Canopy Farm Management for a field day focused on agroforestry design and establishment. Located outside of Urbana, IL, Hudson Farm demonstrates a range of agroforestry practices, crops, and designs suited to Central Illinois row crop lands. In partnership with a private landowner through a long-term lease structure and the current row-crop farmer, this site deploys multiple forms of alley cropping, 3 different windbreak designs, and hosts both an elderberry and hazelnut variety trial. In addition, Hudson Farm also illustrates how USDA NRCS can support farmers and landowners achieve farm and conservation goals through agroforestry and perennial practices.

Lunch is provided! Please stay to keep the conversation going after a morning of learning and connection. Lunch, drinks, snacks, and dessert will be provided.

Thank you sponsors!
