Juneberry Tasting and Farm Tour at Fields Restored

June 22 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Across the Midwest, farmers are planting native fruit and nut species to restore and revitalize the land. In 2015, Scott and Sandy Williams incorporated native trees on their family farm to protect the soil, clean the water, and provide a sustainable food source–thus began Fields Restored.

Join us for a farm tour which showcases four agroforestry practices:

  • silvopasture
  • windbreaks
  • alley cropping
  • riparian buffer

. . . and learn more about one of our favorite tree species on the farm, the juneberry (Amelanchier spp.).

Educators from Savanna Institute and Farmers Rising‘s CRAFT (Collaborative Regional Alliance for Farmer Training) will teach participants how to grow and sell juneberries; with a chance to taste from several juneberry varieties!

Pack a picnic lunch and a picnic blanket; snacks and light refreshments will be provided.
