Our newest collection of courses takes you through the conservation and economic benefits of integrating trees into farm systems so you can better assist landowners in adopting agroforestry.

Over seven courses, you will learn:

  • Soil health fundamentals for farmers.
  • Water quality management and how to make riparian buffers work for you.
  • How to cultivate climate solutions in agriculture.
    Conservation and economic benefits of alley cropping and silvopasture.
  • People skills for providing technical assistance to landowners.

$175 for all seven courses or $40 per course

Over three days in October, the Perennial Farm Gathering will bring together a community of farmers, foresters, students, chefs, and more to share lessons learned from perennial food and farm systems. Don’t miss this opportunity to connect in person for the first time in five years!

Farmers and students receive 15% off with code FOOD15. Register today and see the program on Eventbrite.


An agroforestry podcast and blog by the Savanna Institute

“We Can’t Call Them Superfruit” – Barriers to Berry Markets with Bill Davison & PJ Connolly

In the latest episode of the Perennial AF podcast, Savanna Institute staff members Bill Davison and PJ Connolly explain how for some perennial berry crops, the primary barrier to scaling up production is not a lack of interest or a lack of knowledge, but a lack of market development.

This podcast episode is a compilation of short interviews from some of the new videos published on our YouTube channel. Our collaborators at Man Alone Media and Windborne Media have been producing some high quality videos for the Savanna Institute this year, and in some cases, the audio can tell a story all by itself.
